It was a true delight to be back in person last summer with 159 registered swimmers from across 10 states (Massachusetts, Maine, New York, California, Wisconsin, Connecticut, Texas, New Jersey, Florida and Wisconsin). We exceeded $139,000 raised for Compassionate Care ALS and have set our sights even higher for the 12th Annual David’s Old Silver Swim! We hope to see you out at Old Silver Beach on August 13 to splash, swim, and earn those scallop shell medals.
As of this writing, everything is clear skies ahead for the 2022 swim. Should there be any updates, COVID-19 related or otherwise, they will be reflected on the website and information will be e-mailed out to participants.
Check donations to support Compassionate Care ALS can made out to “David’s Swim” and mailed to David’s Swim Inc., 52 Horseshoe Lane, North Falmouth MA 02556.
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.
