Will Swim For Food


When: Saturday, December 15th

Griffin Mahon is a 16-year-old junior at Courtland High School. He’s been a swimmer since the age of 5. Griffin found out about a fundraiser based in Santa Cruz, California that raises money for local food banks.

To raise money participants collect donations for a one mile swim in the Pacific Ocean with the water hovering near 50 degrees. He though it would be a great way to support the Fredericksburg Area Food Bank and has pledged to raise $1,000.00 to provide 3,000 meals to our community.

He would like your help in doing this!

Online donations can be made at Griffin’s personal fundraising page here. They can also be made on our website by clicking the Will Swim for Food logo.

  1. oh, my goodness, I (his mom) did not realize they would post this like this. you may certainly repost! His goal was $1000 but has manage to raise about $1500 so far. his swim is this Saturday and he would appreciate any help he can get! The logo donation for this site does not seem to work but his fundraising page does. Thank you! Lisa
