Blog : 30 Degrees for Wildlife

By webmeadow | Nov 15, 2012 | in

Do you want to go for a swim in near frigid waters this winter? Yeah me neither, but the same cannot be said for creek swimmer and accordionist extraordinaire, Gary Sredzienski. Gary has announced the plans for his 6th annual winter charity swim, which benefits The Center For Wildlife, northern New England's only emergency animal hospital in York, ME. The 3.75 mile swim from Adam's Point in Durham, NH to Little Bay in Dover, NH takes place on December 29, which means water temperatures will be around 30 degrees.

Green Alliance business partner, Portsmouth Brewery sponsored Gary by providing him with a brand new, high-tech wetsuit, but there's much more to be done to reach the $10,000 goal! Everyone is welcome to watch the beginning and end of this epic swim, but you can make a bigger difference by sponsoring Gary.

Participants are invited to gather at 2pm at Adam's Point in Durham to watch Gary take off into the freezing waters, and/or at 4pm at Newick's Restaurant in Dover, NH to watch him complete his swim! Immediately after the swim there will be a gathering at Newick's with Gary, the Center for Wildlife staff and volunteers, and fellow supporters for food, drink, and to celebrate Gary's swim for wildlife!

Good luck, Gary!
