This event is in partnership with the Messer Family, who has been a Bear Paddle Family for many years. The Messer Family suffered great tragedy in 2015 after losing their son Ben at just one-year-old. The term Ben Strong came about during Super Ben’s battle with Heterotaxy Syndrome. The Messer Family and their team are currently raising money for Cincinnati Children’s Hospital in honor of Super Ben, where he received care.

So, how can you help?

• Donate at benstrong.org or in-person
• Attend the event and sign up for Family Swim
• Share this event and the Messer Families story

Have questions? Give us a call at 513-285-8855!

We look forward to a fun night of games, activities, swimming, and raising money for a great cause!
