​On July 14 2015, Henry Biggs swam the 27 around Manhattan Island in 8 hours and 32 minutes to raise funds to endow education and mentoring opportunities for youth in Ferguson and north Saint Louis County. Team Endurance raised over $120,000 in 2015 for nonprofits serving the youth of Ferguson and north Saint Louis County.

On July 26-27 2016, Henry will challenge himself again, this time to complete the 20.2-mile swim across the channel between Catalina Island and mainland California and complete open water swimming's Triple Crown.

Consider a donation to the featured local nonprofits in honor of Henry's swim. Together, we CAN make it!
