A one-of-a-kind aquatic fundraiser with 100% of the funds raised by swimmers providing FREE swim lessons to those who apply and meet the criteria. This past year C2C also began a relationship with 'One with the Water,' an organization that teaches disabled and/ or terminally ill children and adults how to swim.
Did you know that drowning surpasses all other causes of death among children ages 14 and under in California, while LA County has the highest rate of near-drowning of any county in the state? The Coast 2 Coast Swim Challenge was created to heighten awareness of these facts and combat this problem locally.
Whether you swim slow or fast, for one lap or a hundred, you’ll have fun while making a difference! See registration page for complete details.

The 2013 event was a big success on a variety of levels. We raised enough money to provide over 300 children with free swim lessons and for the first time, scholarship recipients from One with the Water showed up and swam to support the event. To see these individuals who have disabilities ranging from MS to being paralyzed from the waist down, swim multiple laps made all the participants realize how blessed we are.
We also welcomed former Olympians Gary Hall Jr. and Croatian National team member Ivan Perhart who swam and coached for over 2 hours each. Ultra-distance swimmer Stanley Leventhal, fresh out of surgery, once again swam almost 20 miles.
Culver City Municipal Pool 4175 Overland Ave. Culver City Calf. 90230. This is one of the best facilities in California for this type of event.
Please respect Culver City Residents and park in their parking lot instead of local streets. There's FREE parking (over 300 spots) to provide easy access for the event.
