This race is to raise awareness and funds to educate others on the #1 reason our kids won’t make it to kindergarten, drowning. (And the 2nd reason our kids won’t see the age of 14!). Swim for Vinny is a non-profit organization whose mission is to raise awareness for infant self-rescue survival swim lessons, support instructor training, and student scholarships, and help promote access to families in need of such critical safety information.
Kids will be able to trick or treat along the route. We are looking for local businesses interested in sponsoring the trick-or-treat stations.
