About This Activity

Our Mission: Our mission is to provide a sporting event that inspires people to live wholesome lives, reach their potential and keep James’s legacy alive through supporting the James Eunice Charity Foundation.

Our Vision: To provide a nationally recognized sporting event that attracts out-of-state swimmers and local families to partake in endurance competitions, food, hospitality, and fun; and more importantly, to inspire them through the example of James Eunice to live lives of utmost meaning and purpose.

Our Goal:  Our goal goes far beyond athletics. Our team will provide an annual two-day event that brings people together by sharing great food, providing fun activities, and allowing volunteer opportunities during a professionally coordinated swim event – all in a climate where God is present. We desire everyone to hear the convicting stories of James’ faith, the Eunice family’s love, and a giving community – and to allow God as unhindered way in their lives …as He did in James.
