The Clock Is Ticking
The Clock Is Ticking mission is to provide a sporting event that inspires people to live wholesome lives, to reach their potential, and keep James’s legacy alive through supporting the James Eunice Charity Foundation. The vision is to provide a nationally recognized sporting event that attracts out-of-state swimmers and local families to partake in endurance competitions, food, hospitality, and fun. The goal goes far beyond athletics. The event is a 2-day event with 1-mile, 2.4-mile, and 7-mile races that brings people together by sharing great food, providing fun activities, and allowing volunteer opportunities during a professionally coordinated swim event, all in a climate where God is present.
