Swim 4 Vets next swim adventure and veteran fundraiser will be The 8 Bridges Hudson River Swim in New York. Tentative date of June 2019.
Amber Baker has already stated her intent to swim with Diana Moissonnier, Swim 4 Vets Founder, in this epic 7 day event as a 2 man relay. Due to the cost of this event They will only be able to swim 2 stages, known as a double. Cost for the event is $1350 per stage for a relay team. While the cost seems high it will help cover the kayaker and support boat that will accompany all of the swimmers.
This race is held annually in June of each year and each day the swimmers enter the water to swim from bridge to bridge. Starting bridge for the race is Rip Van Winkle and ending bridge, on day 7, is Verrazano Narrow, the gateway to New York. Amber and Diana are super excited to be a part of this annual event and to help raise money for a local New York veteran charity.
