Join me for my swim around Manhattan

And stop the drowning

My name is Alexis Puhan. My passion for swimming started on a hot July day in 1992. I crossed lake Zurich, a less than a mile swim. It felt really long!
This experience must have switched on the “long distance swim button” inside me. Ever since, swimming got more regular and distances longer.
The ultimate dream has always been to swim around Manhattan. I am super excited to finally do it on July 23. I hope this inspires many of you to swim more and also to support the Swim Strong Foundation and stop the drowning. Swim Strong Foundation is a nonprofit that saves and changes lives through the great sport of swimming.


Follow me on the live tracker on July 23.

If you have feedback or questions, please contact me.


Many thanks, Alexis


Every dollar raised goes to Swim Strong’s scholarship fund. Donate to support!

My goal

My goal is to donate $10,000 to buy a series learn to swim lessons for 40 kids. Those lessons will prevent the kids from drowning. Drowning is the second leading cause of death for children in the U. S..
