Our first grant!

It’s been an honour, privilege, and a whole lot of fun getting to know the Lake Ontario Waterkeeper – and now SwimDrinkFish Canada – team over the past year. We’re looking forward to many more years helping them fight for swimmable, drinkable, fishable waters in #OurGreatLakes. Our inaugural grant this year, of $653, is going to help them continue their vital work, making our waters safe for generations of swimmers, paddlers, surfers, divers, anglers – anyone and everyone who can find inspiration in the lakes for adventures great and small!  #GLOWswimming  #SwimDrinkFish

Winter Solstice sunrise swim 2016

A fun way to welcome the sun after the winter solstice, and to keep pushing our vision of the Great Lakes as a continuing source of adventure and inspiration, even watersheds as challenged by industrialization and urbanization as those along the shores of Lakes Erie and Ontario. #SwimDrinkFish along the Oakville Shore at Coronation Park.
