Night Train Swimmers is a 501 c 3 started in 2008 and currently has over 40 open water swimmers, ranging from amateur to olympic gold medalists. We have set multiple world records, including the current world record for the longest relay, and have used our non-profit as a platform to raise more than $1.5 million for various causes and organizations such as Semper Fi, The Lighthouse Foundation, Reed School District, and Baykeeper as well as teaching over 300 underprivileged kids how to swim and be water safe.
In 2015, the city of San Francisco issued a proclamation honoring Night Train Swimmers along with the first woman to swim solo from the Farallons, Kim Chambers. Also in 2015, we helped raise $40k to get a ReWalk suit for Arthur Michael Renowitzky, who was paralyzed after being shot in the chest at age 18.
In 2016, we will be supporting Baykeeper and Shark Stweards among other organizations. For more than 25 years, Baykeeper has worked to stop pollution in San Francisco Bay. Its vision for the next 25 years is a San Francisco Bay where the water is clean, the ecosystem is healthy, recreation is safe, and wildlife can thrive. Shark Stewards’s mission is to protect critical marine habitat and restore ocean and bay health by saving sharks from overfishing and from the shark fin trade.
