Swim With Nick
October 16 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm
“I will train as hard as I can in and out of the water.
Even on my hardest days I swear to give it my all and I will let nothing stand in my way.”
Nicholas Dworet Memorial Foundation has worked tirelessly to schedule, reschedule, and again reschedule the Inaugural Swim With Nick 1 Mile Ocean Swim. This event is and will be an amazing celebration of Nick and his love of swimming. The support from the community has been humbling and exciting. While we have focused on aspects of the event to make it fun and as meaningful to the Dworet family, we also value the safety and well-being of all our swimmers, staff, and volunteers. After discussions with the foundation board, family, and Dr. Von D. Mizell-Eula Johnson State Park, we have decided to reschedule the event for Fall 2021. The exact date will be posted soon as we work the final details with all the parties involved. We appreciate all the support and look forward to seeing everyone in the Fall of 2021 for the Inaugural Swim With Nick 1 Mile Ocean Swim.
Nicholas Dworet was taken from us on February 14, 2018 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. He was a beautiful young man survived by his loving family, mother Annika, father Mitch, brother Alex, and his girlfriend Daria. He was loved by everyone who knew him.
Nick loved to swim! He stated swimming when he was just seven years old. Nick flourished his last few years in high school and became an amazing student athlete earning a swimming scholarship to the University of Indianapolis!
Nick was always helping his friends and teammates be the best they could be. In his memory we are holding a swim clinic for all middle and high school swimmers who want to improve with hard work and dedication! This is the inaugural 1 mile ocean Swim With Nick event! Open to all levels of swimmers! Everyone is welcome to join in for the day to remember Nick and come together as one swim family.
