We sure hope to see you here on Saturday, August 6! By the way, while you are having fun with the swim, you're actually making a contribution to an important program for young people here in northern Idaho! That's because ... the money we raise goes to our swim lessons initiative. Our entry fees offset event expenses, but we use the balance to provide swim lessons for local children. Would you like to donate a bit extra? The mission of our initiative is to see that no child in Bonner County gets past third grade without learning to swim. We hope for additional donations to support this life-saving and life-changing program. Please, if you can donate, do donate!
HERE'S MORE INFORMATION ABOUT OUR SWIM
If you are not acquainted, our annual Long Bridge Swim is held the first Saturday in August. Located in beautiful Sandpoint, Idaho, this 1.76-mile swim across Lake Pend Oreille is one of the Northwest's premier open-water events. Because it parallels the namesake Long Bridge into Sandpoint, it offers the unique chance for friends and family of swimmers to follow along the swim course from the bridge.
