What: The Swim for Life (Official website) is an annual swim to raise money for several Ptown social services. Now in its 33rd year, the swim has grown to be one of the largest community gatherings on Cape Cod, bringing people together from around the country and around the corner.
UPDATE 9/5: The swim itself has been cancelled due to the coming storm, which is expected to bring high winds that could be dangerous for swimmers and kayakers.
However, all other Swim for Life Activities will be held. See the Complete Schedule.
