22nd Annual Drowned Hogs Swim

January kicks off with an icy edge when the Drowned Hogs storm Nantasket Beach and make their 22nd annual mad dash into the Atlantic Ocean. At Noon, on Saturday, January 28, 2017 hundreds of hardy nutcases committed to doing something cool and crazy for a cause—Wellspring Multi-Service Center—will predict the arrival of spring in their own special way. Anyone can join, and there are only a few rules.

·         The swim doesn't count unless the swimmer fully dunks.

·         Wet suits are allowed ONLY if the wearer also wears a tutu and a tiara.

         This is a fund-raiser so please (registered swimmers) only!

All individuals, teams, groups or families with warm hearts willing to do something cool for charity are welcome to join the craziness. Information and pledge sheets are available at www.drownedhogs.org or www.wellspringhull.org. Registration fee is $10. and includes the
