The TCT7 Swim is a non-profit event. All proceeds benefit the James Eunice Charity Fund, which has donated over $300,000 to the community through local charities and 270 scholarships to graduating seniors from area high schools. The event and charity honor the life and legacy of 17 year old James Eunice, a young man wise beyond his years who went missing while duck hunting on January 15, 2011. He was recovered the morning of January 31, 2011, following a 17 day, 24/7 search by teams from Georgia, Florida and Alabama. James' story and how he lived impacted the community in ways that continue to this day. The event is designed for participants to be challenged in both the water as an athlete and in life as a friend, family member, and neighbor.
All events will be held at the Lowndes County 4H Camp, 5000 4H Club Road, Lake Park, Ga 31636 on beautiful Long Pond. Click for map and directions. We thank you for continuing the legacy of James Eunice, a young man who is still making a difference in this world.
