Among the highest grossing charity swims in the world is the Tampa Bay Frogman Swim in Florida that exceeded over US$500,000 in donations* for the Navy SEAL Foundation last year.

When the popular charity swim was cancelled due to weather, race directors Rory O’Connor and Kurt Ott immediately set their eyes on next year.

Ott looks forward. “Our registration opens on August 6th at 7 am EST. Swimmers can register at www.tampabayfrogman.com. The event date is January 15th 2017. All raised money will go to the Navy SEAL Foundation as we’ve always done.”
