Dan Projansky not only swam the 8-mile (13.2 km) Swim for Freedom all butterfly, but he also raised the most money for the event’s charity beneficiary, the Special Operations Warrior Foundation.

The Foundation supports Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps special Operations personnel and their families by providing full college educations to surviving children of special operations personnel killed in combat or training.

Race director Steele Whowell was very appreciative, “Way to go. Thank you so much for the hard work that everyone put in to raising money to provide financial assistance to those in need. I know the foundation is sincerely grateful for our event and they have expressed their thanks and appreciation to me many times. Swim 4 Freedom is all about supporting our Elite Warriors who risk everything to keep our country safe – let’s continue to support them by swimming a few miles each year.”
