Saturday, July 11, 2020 will mark the 14th Annual Bring on the Bay Open Water Swim for Easter Seals event. As a result of the past success and popularity of this event, there are two open-water swim distances offered:
o our traditional 3km, point-to-point swim across beautiful Britannia Bay starting at the Nepean Sailing Club and ending at the Britannia Yacht Club, and
o the new fun 1500m, point-to-point swim starting at the Britannia Beach and ending at the Britannia Yacht Club.
Both swims are open to swimmers of all ages and abilities and provide a healthy way to enjoy some friendly competition while supporting kids with physical disabilities, with all race proceeds going to a great cause: Easter Seals Ontario.
Over the past several years the swim has grown tremendously, in 2019 there were 780 registered swimmers, who have raised over $80,000 for Easter Seals Ontario in 2019. The outstanding growth and success of the event has turned this local fundraiser into one of the largest open water swims in Canada with 950 swimmers expected in 2020! Highlights of the event include swim-angel program, fantastic swim bags, a post-swim re-fueling breakfast and awards, and prizes and recognition for swimming and fundraising efforts. Participants also have the opportunity to meet Easter Seals Local Ambassadors. Other highlights of the Bring on the Bay Swim include electronic chip timing for swim results and an easy-to-use online registration and fundraising system.
