The Sixth Annual TCT7 Mile Swim will be held 9-10 September, 2017 at the Lowndes County 4H Camp. The event begins with a BBQ dinner at 6PM on the 9th of September. The swim will be held the morning of 10 Sep. Opening ceremonies begin at 7:30 AM and the race begins at 8 AM. Swimmers can sign up to compete in the one mile event, the 3.5 mile event, or the 7 mile event. The one mile is an out and back event along the shore of Long Pond, while the 3.5 mile event is one lap around Long Pond and the 7 mile event is two laps around Long Pond.
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 185 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 even 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.
Anyone over age of 18 may sign themselves up. Anyone younger must have permission from parent or guardian.
