Beginnings...

    In the early nineties, my father, Bob Schlesinger, swam around the perimeter of Lake Tahoe to help non-profit organizations, such as Save the Rainforrest and American Cancer Society.


    In memory of my father, I repeated his swim around Lake Tahoe in August 2013.

    This year, I’m doing it again.

      In the early nineties, a man from Reno swam around the perimeter of Lake Tahoe for charity. Twenty-four years later, his son is repeating his incredible journey in his father’s memory, with all the proceeds going to the Solace Tree. In memory of my father, I repeated his swim around Lake Tahoe in August 2013. This year, I’m doing it again. It is my goal to raise awareness and monies for the cause. Please join me for the Swimming for Solace event, together, we can make a real difference...
