Penguin Swim

January 1, 2021

The Penguin Swim is a fun, annual event to support our not-for-profit community hospital. Each year, hundreds of Penguins raise funds to help the hospital provide the excellent quality care our community depends on. Individual and Team fundraising efforts by Penguin Swim participants enable Atlantic General to continue to provide that care, but they can’t do it alone! Business sponsors help make the event a great success as the Penguin Swim is one of our largest fundraisers in support of Atlantic General Hospital’s mission to provide a coordinated care system with access to quality care, personalized service and education to create a healthy community. All proceeds benefit Atlantic General Hospital Foundation. AGH is a 501c3 organization, gifts are tax-deductible as allowed by law.

Please Note: The Entire Event Will Take Place Outdoors So Come Prepared For The Weather!

The Registration Fee is $25.00 per Participant.

ALL participants MUST register either online or in-person
AND check-in to receive a wristband to gain access to the Swim Area!

The Swim Will Take Place at 1:00p.m. on the Beach From 91st – 94th Street.
Participants and their spectators will be directed to physically distanced markers on the beach
where they will remain throughout the event.
