2016 Swim

On August 13, 2016, The Watershed Center Grand Traverse Bay held its first annual Swim for Grand Traverse Bay, a 2-mile point-to-point open water swim and the only one of its kind in the Grand Traverse region. These were some of our accomplishments: 


Close to 100 swimmers and paddlers in the water

More than 25 sponsors provided financial or
in-kind support 

Close to 40 volunteers on the ground or in the water

Total raised: $18,500

In a post-event survey of registered participants, 88.6% rated their overall experience as “very good” or “excellent” and 91.4% said they were “very likely” or “extremely likely” 
to participate again.
