About This Activity

This open water swim (fixed buoy course) will honor one of America's heroes, Aaron Vaughn. Aaron was a Navy SEAL (SEAL Team VI), KIA on Aug. 6th, 2011 when a Chinook helicopter carrying 30 American warriors was shot down in the Tangi River Valley of Afghanistan. All 30 Americans lost their lives that day. In the wake of their loss, Aaron's family began an organization known as Operation 300. Operation 300 hosts extreme adventure camps for children of fallen soldiers. For more information, please visit the website listed above. All proceeds from the swim go to this extraordinary 501c3.
