JOIN ME IN MY EFFORTS TO RAISE AWARENESS AND PROVIDE
THE FUNDS TO HELP OTHERS ACCESS RECOVERY
My Solo Marathon Swimming endeavors are dedicated to demonstrating just how far one can go on a Second Chance.
No matter how far down an individual may spiral, there is always hope for the living. Without access to Recovery, there is often little hope, and without hope, there is only death. Access to Recovery services provides a second chance for those who have suffered the depths of Alcohol and Substance Abuse Disorder. The disease is powerful, but Recovery is equally powerful. More than half of the proceeds from the iSwim4 Marathon Swims campaign is directed to The Herren Project.
The iSwim4 Mission is to help others to discover the Rewards of Recovery. We facilitate Solo and Relay Open Water Marathon Swims to raise awareness of this critical social issue and we use these events as a platform to raise funds for THE HERREN PROJECT which is a non-profit foundation providing treatment resources, family counseling and preventative education programs for those affected by Alcohol and Substance Abuse Disorder. (Visit "TheHerrenProject.org" to learn more or to make a direct tax-deductible donation using the iSwim4 link:https://theherrenproject.networkforgood.com/projects/164155-iswim4-s-fundraiser ). We also provide swim training programs and events for the Recovery Community, which provides a strong foundation as a SUPPLEMENTAL program for helping individuals maintain their program of sobriety.
THERE ARE SUFFERING INDIVIDUALS IN EVERY CORNER OF OUR WORLD WHO HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO DO GREAT THINGS. The only way they can achieve their potential is to receive the gift of Recovery. There are services available, but inaccessible to many. THIS IS WHY YOUR HELP IS NEEDED.
There are countless sick & suffering people who may go on to enjoy great accomplishments and inspire countless others, or they may simply become happy and productive members of their families and communities - BUT THEY NEED OUR HELP TO CONNECT WITH THE RIGHT RESOURCES.
To date, iSwim4 has raised NEARLY $10,000 for The Herren Project through simple grassroots fundraising campaigns. My impending attempts at some of the world's most challenging swims will focus on fundraising Tens of Thousands more so that others can meet their full potential. Your help is needed.
My swimming events provide maximum visibility for the power of Recovery. It is one highly impactful way that I have recognized an opportunity to pass on the gift that was given to me. Now, I'm willing to go to great lengths to pass this gift on to others.
CORPORATE INVOLVEMENT CAN GREATLY ENHANCE THE ATTENTION THAT THIS IMPORTANT SOCIAL ISSUE DESERVES.
Sponsorship involvement with these swims through the iSwim4 platform allows us to direct more funds to the ultimate beneficiary, The Herren Project.
The recognition our campaign generates can enable participating sponsor organizations to promote their brand by leveraging their commitment to this important social issue. Consumers in general have demonstrated an ever-increasing preference for products and companies that promote causes consistent with their social awareness.
Your support of the iSwim4 campaign is a way to strengthen brand awareness and promote your products and services.
Our swim expeditions promise to provide groundbreaking exposure for all collaborators. This is an investment that has the potential to provide rewards that are both financial, inspirational and motivational, as well as an opportunity to identify your organization as an advocate for the power of transformation through teamwork and Recovery.
I'm also excited to announce that we are forming a team of swimmers to take on the Catalina Channel in 2023. The team is comprised of men & women from within the Recovery community who are moved to inspire others by demonstrating what's possible. Although we have a core group of swimmers of various abilities, we need a few more to complete the team. A high level of swim skill is not required - just a willingness to train towards swimming for an hour in the open ocean.
Sponsorships and donations will also help facilitate this relay collaboration which will in turn provide more hope and more funds for Recovery.
We have raised thousands of dollars to date for The Herren Project through grassroots fundraising efforts at each of of our marathon swim events. The continuation of the progressively larger scale of these swims requires sponsorship.
Help us continue to demonstrate what's possible in Recovery - and more importantly, provide the resources that make Recovery a reality for others!
