Get Wet For A Good Cause! Montauk Virtual Swim Challenge

The Montauk Playhouse Community Center Foundation (MPCCF) invites the community to “Get Wet for a Good Cause” at the 13th Annual Montauk Swim Challenge, taking place from Saturday, July 24 – Saturday, July 31, 2021.

Held this year as a virtual online event via the Elite Feats athletic event platform, the Montauk Swim Challenge features three distance categories for swimmers of all ages and abilities. Beginners can sign up for a half-mile swim, more experienced swimmers can register for the one-mile swim, and the adventurous can tackle the 5K swim. Participants will seek personal sponsors for their swim, swim their chosen distance, and log their results online. Swimmers will choose their own location to complete their swim (pool, ocean, bay, lake, etc.).

Julia McCormack, Development Director of the Montauk Playhouse Community Center Foundation, said “We’re thrilled to continue the tradition of the Montauk Swim Challenge this summer as a virtual event. This annual fundraiser for the Playhouse Foundation is a wonderful way for us to continue to move forward in our mission to raise funds to construct Aquatic and Cultural Arts Centers at the Montauk Playhouse. We invite the entire community to participate—this is an especially fun summer activity for kids and families!”
