'Dare to Reach' swim Saturday to benefit two nonprofits

East Lyme — The “4 Mile Extreme ‘Dare to Reach’ Swim Fundraiser” will take place from 7 to 11 a.m. Saturday in Niantic.

During the event, a doctor and a disabled veteran will swim together from the Giants Neck Beach area to Hole-in-the-Wall Beach.

The fundraiser will support the Therapeutic Research Foundation, a non-profit biotechnology company, and Veterans in America, a new organization that aims to employ veterans, accompanied by therapy-trained dogs, in schools, public facilities and events for the purpose of therapy and healing.
