The 2017 Ocean Swimarathon is history. This year was organized around Flashmob on social media due to uncertain weather. Forty participants, all experienced ocean swimmers launched during rainy, windy conditions to raise money for Polio Plus and Channel swimmer Anne Cleveland who is diagnosed with cancer of the pancreas. A total of $2200 was raised today and more Donations are arriving at the Youcaring Website
La Jolla Sunrise Rotary partnered with La Cove Swim Club to support Anne. Hot towels, muffins, donuts and hot coffee/coco warmed chilly swimmers. La Jolla Sunrise Rotary conducted the first Ocean Swimarathon in 2011 helping establish the first of two Guinness World Records. This year's Flashmob may well be another first for La Jolla Sunrise Rotary .
