Volunteers are the lifeblood of the
Boston Light Swim

Without our volunteers, the Boston Light Swim would never happen. Because we value the investment of time and energy these critical people make, we offer our volunteers the option to bypass the swimmers' lottery in the year after they have served. This is a popular option, so we must limit the number of slots we offer. Therefore, we seek four volunteers for the Friday evening safety meeting and dinner and four on the day of the swim. 

As with swimmer enrollment, demand for these limited placements outstrips the number of slots we can offer, therefore we select volunteers based on a random lottery draw.
