UPDATE: BIG thank you to all the amazing participants & partners that came out on August 24th! While conditions were unfortunately too rough for #TeamSwim, #TeamSUP battled grueling wind and waves to protect Lake Erie. #TeamSwim will reattempt their leg of the challenge on Saturday September 7th! Please show your support for these amazing and generous individuals by donating below!

On Aug 24th aqua-athletes are pushing their limits to defend our Great Lake Erie!

Help them raise funds to free Lake Erie from microplastics, sewage pollution, and toxic algae blooms!

Two teams of dedicated athletes have been training for months in preparation for the August 24th #LakeErieChallenge, when they will swim and stand-up paddle board across the vast open water distance of 30 km from Long Point to Port Dover. Their goal is to raise awareness and funds to address these serious environmental issues.

Your donation will go a long way in supporting the Lake Erie Guardians, a Canadian Freshwater Alliance initiative that supports local community members to defend Lake Erie from environmental threats, specifically algae blooms, but also microplastics and sewage pollution.

Every dollar counts when it comes to shaping a Lake Erie that future generations can be proud of. Will you take on the challenge? Please support these dedicated athletes and Lake Erie defenders by donating below!
