The Clock Is Ticking

The goal goes far beyond athletics. The event is a 2-day event with 1-mile, 2.4-mile, and 7-mile races that brings people together by sharing great food, providing fun activities, and allowing volunteer opportunities during a professionally coordinated swim event, all in a climate where God is present.
