About Us

It’s Time to Get Ready… for the 27th Annual Penguin Swim to benefit the Atlantic General Hospital Foundation!

The Penguin Swim is a fun, annual event to support our not-for-profit community hospital. Each year, hundreds of Penguins raise funds to help the hospital provide the excellent quality care our community depends on. Individual and Team fundraising efforts by Penguin Swim participants enable Atlantic General to continue to provide that care, but they can’t do it alone! Business sponsors help make the event a great success as the Penguin Swim is one of our largest fundraisers in support of Atlantic General Hospital’s Mission to provide a coordinated care system with access to quality care, personalized service and education to create a healthy community.


Event day check-in and registration begins at 10:00a.m. and ends at 12:30p.m. in the Premier Lobby in the lower level of the hotel. Fun and games will take place in the Atrium on the second floor. The swim will take place at 1:00p.m. on the beach. ALL swimmers MUST register either online or in-person AND check-in to receive a wristband to gain access to the Swim Area!

Come to advance check-in and registration at the Princess Royale in the Premier Lobby from 2:00-4:00p.m. on New Year’s Eve to be eligible for pre-registration incentive prizes!

The registration fee is $25.00 per swimmer. All registered swimmers will receive an official 2021 Penguin Swim T-shirt! Pre-Register by December 1st to guarantee size.

If you are a returning Penguin from last year’s Penguin Swim, please LOGIN first before signing up for this year’s event. Thank you!
