Greg Banks, ATC, CSCS is the Practice Administrator of the Rehabilitation Center of Charleston in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina and the co-race director for the 2.4-mile and 5-mile Low Country Splash open water swimming competition, one of America's Top 100 Open Water Swims.
Low Country Splash
Low Country Splash is a 2.4-mile and 5-mile open water swim along the Mount Pleasant shoreline in Charleston harbor. Over 500 swimmers from 30 American states between the ages of 9 and 89 participate in the charity swim in the low country of South Carolina. It is one of America's Top 100 Open Water Swims. The event runs 2.4 miles along the Mount Pleasant shoreline, swimming under the Cooper River Bridge and finishing at the Charleston Harbor Marina and Resorts in front of the USS Yorktown at Patriots Point.
Proceeds from the Splash benefit the Logan Rutledge Children's Foundation, a local non-profit organization promoting the health and welfare of children in the Lowcountry. The foundation was established in May 2002 in memory of Logan Jennings Rutledge (30 July 2001 - 26 August 2001). Since its beginning the foundation has supported the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the Medical University of South Carolina and has made numerous contributions to assist individual children in need in the Lowcountry.
