Swim For Life & Paddler Flotilla

The Swim for Life was started in 1988 to raise awareness and funds to help those with AIDS in Provincetown. Now in its 29th year – September 9, 2017 – and sponsored the Provincetown Community Compact, the Swim has grown to be one of the largest community gatherings on Cape Cod, bringing people together from around the country and around the corner.

Funds now raised from this annual 1.4 mile swim across Provincetown Harbor are donated to many community organizations: Helping Our Women, the AIDS Support Group of Cape Cod, Outer Cape Health, Provincetown Rescue Squad, Lower Cape Ambulance, Soup Kitchen in Provincetown, Provincetown Schools, The Compact Community Fund,  and Accessible Provincetown.

We continue to be humbled by the hundreds of swimmers, paddlers and volunteers who consider Provincetown their spiritual home, and come together for this celebration in commemoration of their loved ones and in the spirit of community.

The 2017 Swim is scheduled for September 9, 2017. Take the Plunge!
