Welcome to David's Old Silver Swim!
This 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.
We all missed gathering at Old Silver Beach to splash, swim, and earn those scallop shell medals, but our fundraising goals never slowed. Thanks to the support of our family, friends, and fans, we have raised nearly $90,000 – and are still accepting donations to support Compassionate Care ALS. Checks can made out to “David’s Swim” and mailed to David’s Swim Inc., 52 Horseshoe Lane, North Falmouth MA 02556.
Or you can donate online:
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.
Until 2021… 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.
