In addition to paddlers, the Yates County Sheriff's Department provides Marine Patrol Boats who position themselves across the width of the lake. Lifeguards are present in motorized boats as well.
All money raised from this event is for the Keuka Comfort Care Home. KCCH provides a facility and staff to ensure compassionate care in a peaceful, home-like environment for our community's terminally ill residents and their families, at no cost to these patients or families. KCCH is an extremely valuable asset to our community and the quality of care at KCCH has been experienced by many.
Swimmers are welcome to form their own teams or "pods". Family members, co-workers, organization members, or friends. We encourage healthy money-raising competition among swimmers and pods, but Krossin' Keuka is not a race. The goal is to raise as much money as possible and have fun.
