A Statement Regarding Women Swimmin’ for Hospicare 

With the safety of our participants and volunteers the top priority, and following guidance from the CDC and state and local authorities, we are relying on several key groups of advisors and decision-makers to assist with all aspects of the event: 

  • A 12-member planning committee that includes Hospicare board members, swimmers, paddlers, and volunteers who collectively have over 200 years of experience with Women Swimmin’;  
  • A Safety committee comprised of several long-serving volunteers, members of the Kayak Safety Team, a Board member and a swimmer; 
  • The Hospicare COVID Committee, which meets twice a month to review all plans for activities and events, including clinical and non-clinical endeavors;   
  • The Hospicare staff who are responsible for implementation of all decisions 

As you might imagine, planning an event as large as Women Swimmin’ for Hospicare is a year-round endeavor, even in non-pandemic times! We commit to you that we will do the best we can to create an event that safeguards our swimmers and volunteers, allows for a ton of community fun, and adheres to safety regulations.
