Make Waves for Winni: Swim-a-Thon

Let’s make a splash! In the last week of August, LWA will be hosting a Swim-a-Thon!
For the last 3 years, Alexis Wallace has trained year-round to complete a benefit swim to raise awareness and support LWA’s mission to preserve the beauty and ecological health of Lake Winnipesaukee.

Alexis battles Lyme disease and cannot complete the distance that she had hoped for this year. With your help, we can soar far beyond her goal of 3 miles and spread her message to all those around the lake. You can help by joining our swim! Each swimmer will be collecting pledges online through this fundraising page and/or through our website. Please share this initiative with your friends and family to ensure its success! This will mark Alexis Wallace’s 4th Annual swim, reflecting her dedication to protecting the lake’s natural wonders for present and future generations.

As I approach my fourth annual swim for the Lake Winnepesaukee Association, I am overwhelmed with joy about increasing awareness and  the importance of caring for our beloved lake. This year marks, my halfway point as I work towards swimming in every town around the lake. Despite the medical challenge of long haul Lyme disease, I’m excited and awed by the outpouring of interest and support for the LWA! As the song says,“ With a Little Help from my Friends”, we will raise funds and awareness about the many ways we can care for the lake. May God bless all the swimmers, all the donors, and the entire Lake Winnipesaukee Association family. I can’t think of a happier way to close my 72nd year on the lake than by joining forces with like-minded people who are dedicated to the stewardship of the lake. And special thanks go out to Deb Macone for being my relay buddy. I couldn’t do this without you! Wishing you all a happy healthy swim! ~Alexis Wallace
