TryCharleston and LAPS work together for safer swimmers

Swimmers entered the lake at KOA on Saturday, April 15th to begin the first leg of the TryCharleston triathlon as several volunteers closely monitored from paddleboards, kayaks, and jetskis to ensure their safety. TryCharleston donated a portion of proceeds to LAPS, as both organizations promote safety in and around the water.  Volunteers included Palmetto Masters swimmers, local surfers, LAPS staff, and Charleston County's Rescue Squad. We thank TryCharleston for their contribution to LAPS, the volunteers for their commitment, and we look forward to next year's event!
