The Clock Is Ticking 7 Mile Swim (TCT7) was held on September 9th.

The TCT7 is a non-profit event is centering around 17-year-old James Eunice, a young man who impacted the community in ways that continue even to this day. The event is designed for participants to be challenged in both the water as an athlete and in life as a friend, family member, and neighbor.

John Eunice explains, "Our mission is to provide a sporting event that inspires people to live wholesome lives, reach their potential and keep James’s legacy alive through supporting the James Eunice Charity Foundation.

To provide a nationally recognized sporting event that attracts swimmers from across the local area, state and country to partake in endurance competitions, food, hospitality, and fun; and more importantly, to inspire them through the example of James Eunice to live lives of utmost meaning and purpose. The swim event will offer a unique opportunity to provide a venue where they gather to enjoy each other, food, and athleticism, all to honor James' legacy of a lifestyle that puts God first, others second, and self last
