That Dam Swim 2016

That Dam Swim 2016 will take place on Saturday, September 17 at Lake Fontana in Western North Carolina.  Jim Cottam and Chris Lechner will spend the day swimming the 20+ mile long lake to raise money for The Hope Chest for Women, an area 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides support to women around Asheville who have cancer.

In addition to Jim and Chris swimming the entire length of Lake Fontana, Todd Newnam and Larry Hartley will swim approximately 10k and other individuals will be swimming for different shorter lengths throughout the day.  Family, friends and supporters will follow the swimmers in a pontoon boat and a few people will also be paddling alongside the swimmers using kayaks and stand up paddle boards.
