Four active duty U.S. Navy SEALs today swam the entire length of Maine’s Sebago Lake, about 13 miles.
The goal was to raise money for Camp Sunshine, a unique camp that serves children with life threatening illnesses and welcomes their entire families for a free week of rest and fun.
The SEALs were greeted by hundreds of people on shore after spending seven hours in the water and raising more than $80,000. One of the SEALs stated after the swim, “I can’t put it into words how good that feels, seeing people here, seeing what it does for families warms my heart.”
The money raised by the Navy SEALs’ swim will be used to help military families who have sick children go to Camp Sunshine. The camp serves about 800 families each year.
Mission accomplished guys! Hooyah!
