Our annual Riverkeeper 4K Swim, presented by Alterna Savings, is fast approaching! Join us on August 10th and make the trek from Ontario to Quebec by swimming across the mighty Ottawa River! There are three distances to challenge you: 4K, 1.5K and 750m. Sign up for whichever distance you prefer!
Every year, swimmers and paddlers from the National Capital Region and beyond take to the water to swim and advocate for a clean, swimmable river. Participants are encouraged to fundraise, by themselves or by forming teams, and compete to see who can take home some of our amazing fundraising prizes!
If you aren’t convinced yet, read these testimonials from previous participants!
