Navy SEALs, veterans run, bike, then swim to raise money for Camp Sunshine

SEALs for Sunshine started in 2014, but this year's Peak to Peaks Challenge has been the toughest yet.

Camp Sunshine has hosted "SEALs for Sunshine" to raise money for kids with life-threatening illnesses since 2014, but this year's challenge was the biggest, and perhaps craziest, yet.

On Thursday, Navy SEALs and other veterans took part in the "Peak to Peaks Challenge." This grueling new challenge had participants start at the Peak of Mount Washington, New Hampshire, run 7.6 miles down, to then bike nearly 100 miles to Portland's East End Beach. Then, they entered the harbor for a 2.4-mile swim to Peaks Island. 

Retired Navy SEAL Commander, Michael Wisecup started this annual tradition when he and three other Navy SEALS became the first known people to swim the entire 13-mile length of Sebago Lake.  

The goal has been to create challenging physical events for participants to support Camp Sunshine’s mission and the families it serves.
