This year’s Will Swim for Food was cancelled due to dangerous conditions but the swimmers are honoring their pledges to swim for food, and will be doing so individually. In the meantime, Nick Alaga and swimmers, supporters, and organizers gathered on the wharf, sharing stories of past cold-water swims, raising a little more money through a silent auction, and talking about next year’s event.
They raised $25,000 for food banks around the country, including over $11,000 for Second Harvest Santa Cruz County, which will provide nearly 45,000 meals for people in need in our community!
Will Swim is a great example of caring people dedicating their skills and energy to helping their community. We’re so proud of them all!
