Swim to the Moon is a 0.5-mile 1.2-mile, 5 km and 10 km race on August 19th 2018.

The 2017 races start at Halfmoon Lake Beach where Olympic 1500m bronze medalist Christopher Thompson from Dexter, Michigan won his second consecutive 10 km marathon swim.

Eva Solomon describes the event, “It’s an extraordinary open water swimming adventure through the picturesque Hiland Chain of Lakes near Hell, Michigan. Participants have the time of their lives
swimming through southeast Michigan’s most sublime waterways, all the while showing support for a
very worthy cause, North Star Reach, a camp for children with life-threatening, serious, and chronic
medical conditions
