St John is an absolutely beautiful island in the U.S. Virgin Islands! I had a 10-day vacation there last year, and am scheduled for three weeks this Fall. More remote than my usual travel spots, one arrives by flying to the nearby island of St Thomas, then taking a van and then a ferry to St John. The people are friendly, the beaches are stunning, food and drinks are fresh and wonderful!

Like many such destinations, the local population relies on income from tourism to fund many of their programs. With recent hurricanes and now the COVID-19 pandemic, tourism and its income has been drastically reduced. While I cannot pledge to swim (because the YMCA is still closed here), I pledge to walk the equivalent of the "Long Course": from Maho to Hawksnest (3½ miles). Maho and Hawksnest are beaches on the island. Please consider a pledge to help fund swimming lessons for the local children. Thank you!!
