Why We Swim

Each year we ask our swimmers "Why do you swim?" in Women Swimmin' for Hospicare. This year we also asked boaters why they choose to participate. The answers are varied and heartfelt! This year volunteer Lauren McFeeley put the responses together with photos from 10 years of Women Swimmin' for Hospicare. Click here to read what draws people to cross Cayuga Lake in support of Hospicare & Palliative Care Services.

Women Swimmin' is a 1.2 mile community swim (not a race!) across Cayuga Lake for women ages 18 and over. Together we raise funds which will go directly to support patient and family services here in Tompkins County.

Thank you so much for your interest in Women Swimmin' for Hospicare!
