Lake Swimmer Information
Women Swimmin' is a non-competitive, community swim that depends on the cooperation and good will of all involved for its success. The impact of your swim will be felt by our patients and their families throughout the year. The funds you raise directly support our ability to provide expert, compassionate, and excellent care that our patients and families need. These donations also underwrite the Nina K. Miller Hospice Residence, bereavement services, and community education.
As a Lake Swimmer for Women Swimmin' for Hospicare, you agree to:
Stop by and be greeted by Hospicare staff and volunteers and receive your T-shirt and goodies, as well as incentive gifts for those raising over $600 or $1,200. All Lake Swimmers are expected to go to packet pick-up, during one of the times listed below. If you can't make it, let the Women Swimmin' staff know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. You can have a friend or swim buddy pick up your packet for you (if you've raised your fundraising minimum), or we can make arrangements if none of those options work for you.
All packet pick-ups are at Hospicare's Ithaca office at 172 E King Road, Ithaca. Participant packets are for Lake Swimmers and Going the Distance participants. Volunteers can also pick up their T-shirt and nametag at the packet pick-ups.
Hours for packet pick ups:
Your Swimmer packet will include:
Note: All donations made before Friday, August, August 11 at 5pm will be counted towards leaderboard prizes and incentive gifts.
Please review the the Safety Information page and especially the WS Safety Manual for Swimmers & Paddlers to understand our event safety plans, procedures and expectations. Registered Swimmers and Wait List Swimmers will receive regular emails throughout the summer from Hospicare with important reminders about Women Swimmin' and other information.
