On Saturday, August 12, 2017 more than 300 women will swim across Cayuga Lake as part of Women Swimmin’ for Hospicare. Women Swimmin’ for Hospicare is a community swim—not a race—to raise money in support of Hospicare & Palliative Care Services. The women who will swim 1.2 miles across Cayuga Lake are raising funds to support end-of-life care and bereavement support services in our community. The swimmin’ women will be escorted by 170 boaters and met on shore by hundreds of volunteers and well wishers. Volunteers are needed to be escort boaters or to volunteer on-shore. Visit womenswimmin.org to register to boat, to volunteer or to donate in support of a swimmer.
