Our Veteran Swim Team

Supporting The Michigan Chapter of the American Legion




























The Mighty Mac Swim is proud to support and empower U.S. Veterans who have sacrificed with valor for our freedom.  We are thrilled that our swim will be ceremoniously and symbolically led by a team of wounded Veterans who will endeavor to swim the Straits of Mackinac with us!  The Veteran Swim Team is the new face of the Mighty Mac Swim. 


This will be a life-changing experience for the participating Veterans, whose wounds of war may be physical, invisible or both.  This will deliver an empowering message to all Veterans and activate widespread support for the Michigan Department of the American Legion, who is celebrating their 100th anniversary in 2019.  Most importantly, the four wounded Veteran swimmers will show the world (and themselves) how capable they are! 









A Truly Rewarding Fundraising Experience



Make your Mighty Mac Swim experience even more

rewarding by supporting the American Legion and

saluting the courageous efforts of our Veteran Swim

Team with a donation.  Not only will you feel good

about giving back to the wounded Veterans who have

given so much to us, you will receive some great

Veteran Swim Team merchandise as a gift!  All of this

commemorative attire is red to symbolize hardiness

and valor, like the red stripes of the American flag.  

Please ask your family and friends to also graciously

make a donation.  Let us show our gratitude to the

Veterans as they emerge triumphantly from the

water to a landscape of red!
