Chain of Hands Across Lake Cane

On August 17th there is a special event at Lucky’s house to set an RPR world record for the longest human chain over a body of water.  This is in honor of the Man O’ War swim team’s 20th anniversary. this event is being used as a fundraiser for Orange County Special Olympics. Any donations will be given to our local county S.O .

About 16 teams(25 swimmers each) swim towards their own marker/Paddleboarder, then hold hands all the way (500 m) across to another shore.

what we need , folks with their own boards to be markers for the swimmers to swim to.

The swim starts at 745 , please no later than 715 am  at the latest to unload your board . there are 350 swimmers so best to plan to be there as  early as possible as it will be crowded.

 

No board rentals. this is BYOB only .

    I have two boards and I am thrilled about this event. I have been teaching swimming lessons and training tri-atheletes in their swim portion for over 15 years. What a spectacular day this will be for all. See you early [masked]

    Joe and I will be there! (Coffee in hand!) The early AM is difficult for all of us--but if we reflect on our own personal blessings and this ability to help others (Special Olympics), an early morning is an easy gift to give. I hope we/they have enough volunteers to pull off this "longest human chain over a body of water." BYOB community... we can make this happen!!!
