Details of the event will continue to evolve as we get closer to August with considerations for the unknown impact of state and municipal regulations related COVID-19. There may be some changes from the last time we were swimming together to make the swim safe and compliant for all involved. All changes will be reflected on the website and information will be e-mailed out to participants.
2020 was certainly a year unlike any other. For a fundraiser that held its inaugural swim in the midst of a hurricane, we know how to roll with the punches. For 2020, we pivoted to a virtual swim, sold T-shirts of socially distant ducks, and ensured Yummy Mummy brownies were still available for all and raised $90,000 for Compassionate Care ALS. Thank you all for your generous support of the 2020 virtual 10th Annual David’s Old Silver Swim.
We all missed gathering last year at Old Silver Beach to splash, swim, and earn those scallop shell medals, and we look forward to seeing all of you back on the beach for the 2021 event.
David’s resilience, despite these trying times, is as strong as ever. He still signs his letters, “Swinging for the fences.” With your help, that optimism and determination will continue on.
We look forward to seeing you on the beach. Keep swinging for the fences, living large, and dreaming big!

To all of our contributors, supporters, and swimmers – thank you so much for your help in creating the most successful to date. Your contributions helped us swing for the fences and raise over $150,000 from the 9th Annual David’s Old Silver Swim, a 50% increase over last year. The silent auction, along with swimmer registration fees, apparel sales and donations, was a big success and we are proud donate 100% of funds raised to Compassionate Care ALS (CCALS). CCALS is an incredible organization that supports people with ALS through the physical and emotional challenges associated with the disease.
David Garber has adopted the motto, “Swinging for the Fences” and made it into a lifestyle. He lives large in everything he does, from finding joy in friends and family to raising the bar for the impact of David’s Old Silver Swim. The Swim is organized by family and friends, yet would not be possible without the inspiration, effort, and dedication from David himself. David says the Swim is the highlight of his summer, from all the work that goes in to putting on the event and soliciting donations, to the joy of seeing swimmers plunge into the waters of Old Silver Beach.
The 10th Annual David’s Old Silver Swim will be held on August 8, 2020. We hope to see you at the event and that we can count on your continued support!
From everyone associated with David’s Old Silver Swim, and David himself, thank you again for your support.
