Saturday, July 27, 2019 marks the 3rd Annual Swim for Kids. This 1.5 km and 3 km open water swim in beautiful Lake Ontario will be held at Lake Ontario Park. The swim is open to swimmers aged 12+ of all abilities and provides a healthy way to enjoy some friendly competition while supporting two great causes: Easter Seals Ontario and YMCA of Kingston Y Penguins Aquatic Club.
All participants for the 1.5km swim, aged 12- 16 will require approval by Vicki Keith and must have a waiver signed by their parents or guardians.
