Suzanne Fischer explained the start of Swim With A Mission. “We needed to do something. We are frustrated and concerned that our military veterans are being treated so poorly.

Our veterans and their families have given so much and for some, made the ultimate sacrifice. Our veterans deserve more. We live in the land of the free and the home of the brave because of the brave. Swim With A Mission is an open water swimming event to help and honor our veterans.

What a joy it is to be able to bring such a meaningful event to the Lakes Region, to showcase the cleanest lake in the Northeast, to inspire swimmers and volunteers to join us in an open water swim across Newfound Lake, and to be motivated by our U.S. Navy SEALs.

The first two years were a great success due to every swimmer, donor, sponsor, volunteer and participant who helped make this mission victorious.

The event includes 1 km, 5 km, 10 km individual swims, 10 km team relay, Navy SEAL demonstrations, New Hampshire National Guard demonstrations,
the Manchester Police Department K9 vs. Navy SEAL K9 Challenge, and food and entertainment
.”
