Navy SEALs swim 13-plus miles for charity in Maine

CASCO, MAINE — Four active-duty Navy SEALs are swimming more than 13 miles for charity in Maine.

The SEALs plan to swim the entire length of Sebago Lake on Thursday to raise money to send dozens of military families to Camp Sunshine, a retreat for children with life-threatening illnesses.

The four SEALs are starting first thing in the morning and expected to finish at approximately 12:30 p.m.

Thursday’s endurance swim is part of an effort to raise upward of $100,000 — enough to bring 40 or more military families for a Camp Sunshine session next year.
