Swim Bowen

SwimBowen. is an annual 1000 and 500 metre open water swim event held annually on the third Saturday of July at Tunstall Bay, Bowen Island. All proceeds benefit the registered not for profit SwimBowen Society assisting Bowen Islanders undergoing cancer treatment.
Founder: Mary Letson: “I’ve been dreaming of creating this event since my own medical adventures with breast cancer treatment in 2013. Dealing with a cancer diagnosis was the hardest thing I’ve ever done, with a marathon of treatments that left me wondering if I could survive the treatment let alone the cancer. I was beyond fortunate to have access to all the services that helped get me through: massage, acupuncture, nutritional coaching, physiotherapy, pedicures, food delivery, meditation, restorative yoga etc. When I arrived at the finish line, I knew I wanted to give back and create a Bowen fundraising athletic event so those in need could receive the services that might lessen the blow of treatment.”

“Congratulations on putting together such a lovely, fun, unpretentious event!”
