Holy Moly Marathon Swim

My 16-mile (26 km) non-stop marathon charity swim across Lake Skaneateles!

Last summer my Holy Moly Marathon Swim # 2 for charity, on July 14th, 2023, I swam 12 miles (20 km) non-stop across Lake Constance from Germany to Switzerland to Austria and back in 7 hours and 45 minutes. The swim raised over $8,000 for a Holiday Food Drive, which helped feed over 350 families in Paranaiguara, Brazil. 

Due to the Middle East war this year, I will raise funds for the Israeli victims of the conflict. "Our Children Our War" a non-profit charity that provides immediate and long-term support to the Israeli orphans who lost both their parents as a result of the terror attacks on  Israel of October 7th.

Officially , 28 children below the age of 18, and an additional 22 young adults up to the age of 25, have tragically lost both of their parents, however, due to similar additional cases the organisation supports about 50 orphans. Every dollar will be invested in the orphans' futures, their educational, physical, physiological / mental heath and financial needs along with a dedicated family relations volunteer for every family - for the rest of their lives.

For more information please visit their website

On August 17th, 2024 I will conduct my longest ever non-stop marathon swim of 16 miles (26 km) across Lake Skaneateles, a Finger Lake in Upstate New York. Launching from the southern tip of the lake up to the northern tip finishing in the center of the historic town of Skaneateles. A captained safety boat alongside me, will have family and friends aboard to help document and secure this swim adventure.
