Hooked On Swimming Around Manhattan Island

Hooked On Swimming Around Manhattan Island

Mo Siegel, Cara McAteer and Lori Carena will pioneer a new three-person swim format at the 2012 Manhattan Island Marathon Swim. The three will swim as one coordinated team, swimming within a few meters of one other for the entire 28.5 mile circuit in New York.

I think of it as an 8-hour synchronized swim,” says Triple Crown of Open Water Swimming Mo.

We are raising funds for Swim Free, an organization that teaches children and adults in New York, New Jersey and Westchester how to swim, how to swim better and even provides swimsuits and goggles to kids who cannot afford them.”

Additionally, through its Swim Free Angels program, Swim Free assists swimmers and triathletes who need support on race day. “I think there is a growing awareness of the need for this type of support, and Swim Free is there to assist,” explains Mo whose donation page is here
