Fraser River Swim Relay

2015 Fraser River Swim Relay

From Mountains to Sea

Three Sustainable Living Leadership Program alumni, Jacquie Lanthier, Amy Law, and Keely Weget-Whitney are teaming up with Skeena River swimmer Ali Howard, and Sheena Miller to form a dynamic women’s swim team with the goal of swimming the 1,400 km length of the Fraser River. This incredible project will take place in September of 2015, which coincides with the 20th anniversary of Fin Donnelly’s first swim down the Fraser.

This project requires a lot of work, but it is coming together nicely thanks to the dedication of the swim team. In addition to training and fundraising for the event, the team has also been working hard to plan the event. If you would like to help the team by helping to organize an event in the towns listed below, fundraising or donating, or by volunteering in another way, please get in touch with info@rivershed.com to find out how you can help.

Objective:

The Fraser River Swim Relay team aims to inspire action, raise awareness about environmental threats and solutions, and engage communities in public education and community outreach. By swimming the 1,400 km length of the Fraser River, their goal is to inspire Canadians to protect and care for their local watersheds. They hope to increase river stewardship by working with community groups and schools across BC and Canada, and engaging audiences in public education, curriculum and community outreach.
