Grand Forks Fights Falciparum

Location Grand Forks, ND, USA 
03 Dec 2005

This swim is dedicated to attacking one of our most ancient sourges and therefore is rich in the symbolism of malaria.

First, swimmers are encouraged to incorporate '48' in their swim (e.g., 48 minutes, 4800 yds, etc.) to symbolize the 48 hour periodicity between malarial fevers.

Second, swimmers are encouraged to begin their swim encumbered with clothing such as a clean shirt and/or pants to symbolize the burden of malaria that impedes daily life for so many people and societies around the world.
