Jody Wesgate's Freedom Swim


Jody Wesgate

Jody Wesgate, an Irondequoit native will swim the Irondequoit Bay in Rochester, NY on Saturday, July 27, 2019 to raise money for the 14th Hour Foundation.
To Jody, this swim celebrates and gives back to the many selfless individuals that serve and protect our country and their communities.
Her goal is to raise $35,000.

"It's our turn to be their champion of hope
just like they are our champion of freedom," added Wesgate.

The water is Wesgate’s “happy place.” It is her personal sanctuary that opens her heart and mind to new possibilities. Wesgate credits swimming for her full recovery from a knee surgery (2012) and a collar bone surgery (2015). Her future plans include not only the open water swim for the 14th Hour Foundation, but also competing with Swim Fort Lauderdale Master’s team at a U.S. Master’s Swimming National Championship or regional championship in 2020. Wesgate considers it a privilege to swim for the 14th Hour Foundation and would like to thank all first responders, military, contractors and their families for keeping everyone safe and protecting our freedoms.

Live in the area and want to follow Jody's progress live?
She'll be starting at the Lake Ontario and Irondequoit Bay outlet
at 7:30 a.m.

Upon meeting Kris ‘Tanto’ Paronto at a Special Operations Wounded Warrior (SOWW) charity event in Boca Raton, Florida, Wesgate felt compelled to complete a swim benefiting the 14th Hour Foundation. Paronto, an Army Ranger from 2nd Battalion 75th Ranger Regiment, is a member of the CIA annex security team that responded to the terrorist attack on the US Special Mission in Benghazi, Libya, Sept. 11, 2012.
