Charity Swim for SSJ Brazil Complete

July 13, 2023

A 12-mile marathon swim will bring thousands of dollars of aid to the SSJ Brazil mission! We are so grateful to Eyal Feldman who completed his second Holy Moly Charity Swim. The lone marathon swim took place on Thursday, July 13 on Lake Constance in Europe. After weather delays and battling strong currents, Eyal swam from Germany to Switzerland to Austria and back, completing the charity swim in seven hours and 45 minutes. Eyal is the nephew-in-law of Sister Chris Burgmaier. Funds raised from his charity swim will help feed hundreds of people during Sister Chris' Christmas Food Drive in Paranaiguara, Brazil. Last summer, Eyal swam 10 miles non-stop across Chicago's Lake Michigan shoreline, raising over $6,200 which provided food for over 350 families.
