Hudson River Swim and Run

August 3, 2019 from 9-11AM
beginning at Liberty State Park
200 Morris Pesin Dr, Jersey City, NJ

We will provide you with further details leading up to the swim.

All proceeds will help us fulfill our mission

The event is the first-ever legally sanctioned swim across the Hudson River!

Along the route, SEALs will make stops at the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island before arriving in Battery Park. At each stop, SEALs will perform pushups and pullups to honor America’s liberties, diversity, and those who have fought to preserve them. Upon their arrival at Battery Park, the SEALs will run towards One World Trade Center and end their journey at the America’s Response Monument.

Support the Navy SEAL Swim and Run and help GI Go Fund in our numerous efforts aimed at helping military veterans in the New York/New Jersey Region

  • Veteran Homelessness – There are currently 600 homeless veterans living in New York City alone, with over 500 more in New Jersey. With your support, we will work to bring that number to zero by providing housing assistance to homeless veterans, as well as food, clothing, medical care, haircuts, and financial assistance to veterans living on the streets.
  • Small Business Incubator – We have developed the first and only Veteran Small Business Incubator for veteran entrepreneurs to grow their business in the state of New Jersey in Newark, NJ – just one stop away from New York Penn Station. We have seen tremendous growth by the few businesses we have brought in since opening in December 2018, with one winning the StreetShares Veteran Small Business Grant grand prize of $25,000 in April. Your support will help us bring in more veteran entrepreneurs to our Incubator so they can enjoy similar success.
  • Career Training Center– In conjunction with our Incubator, GI Go Fund has developed an incredible space that utilizes state-of-the-art technology to provide unemployed and underemployed veterans with live and on-demand job training and mentorship from successful corporate leaders and fellow veterans. Support the SEAL Swim and you will help our organization provide job training to more veterans locally and throughout the area through live job training.

    As civilian Americans, we enjoy the freedoms we have because somebody else earned that for us. We owe our very freedom and liberty to those who have served our country. Our veterans are the true hero’s and we ALL owe a huge debt of honor to them all. Praise the Lord for our Veterans!
