Carl Oake Splash Challenge

Over the past 35 years, The Carl Oake Rotary Swim has raised over a million dollars for Easter Seals and Rotary Projects in our community, and while we can’t gather as usual to swim laps together at the YMCA, the need for these funds has never been greater.

Enter the Carl Oake Rotary Splash Challenge!

We want to encourage past swim participants, their friends and families, and new participants to make up their own splashy challenge and share it on social media using the hashtag #CarlOakeRotarySplashChallenge.

Make a fun video of yourself doing a cannon ball into your pool or favourite lake, tip a canoe, have a family water balloon toss, or whatever creative, wet stunt you can think of. Then challenge your followers to do something similar, while making a donation online at

Get those donations in and videos posted using the hashtag #CarlOakeRotarySplashChallenge before June 19th, 2021!
