Description:
The mile or half-mile swim race is a fun, meaningful yet lighthearted competition in honor of David Garber with all proceeds to benefit Compassionate Care ALS. After braving Hurricane Irene during the inaugural race and some light rain the next year, the third edition looks to be the best ever.  With an updated timing system, passionate volunteers, a generous host in the Sea Crest Hotel and the beautiful Old Silver Beach location, the race will be fun for swimmers and fans alike.

Course Information:
Choose the one-mile course or the half-mile course and swim competitively or join other families swimming either course just for fun. All ages, swim levels, and physical abilities welcome!
Other Info:

The titular David always enjoyed going out for long swims, often coming home after a (losing) battle with a swarm of jelly fish. He wasn't ever deterred by cold, even resorting to a pick-axe and shovel to break through the ice to go for a dip in mid-winter. Aside from his nautical feats, as a father, brother, son, uncle, dentist, employer, engaged community member and friend, he's as kind, generous and caring as possible.

In 2009, David was diagnosed with ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease. The disease causes a rapidly progressing weakness and muscle atrophy, which affects the ability to walk, eat, speak and breathe. David, true to his nature, sought out experimental treatment to seek a cure for both himself and those who will continue to be affected by the disease. The organization Compassionate Care ALS (CCALS), based in Cape Cod, has been an invaluable resource to David and his family, assisting through each stage of the disease. CCALS depends solely on fundraising to finance its efforts to provide families affected by ALS with medical equipment, information and emotional support.
