SWIM STRONG - Nick Mortenson

***To get the FULL up-to-date scoop on Nick, visit is mom's Facebook page.
LAST UPDATE: August 24th, 2017


Anyone who knows Nick Mortenson knows how STRONG he is; mentally, physically, emotionally…he is so tough & hard working!

It seems like Nick came out of the womb handsome as ever and loving the water. He grew up swimming competitively and participating in extremely athletic races & WINNING!!!


Nick has dreams of becoming a Navy Seal. He has done so many things throughout his life to prepare him for it, but when plans shifted…he turned in his LDS mission papers. He was called to serve in the Chesapeake, Virginia Mission (largely populated by Navy Seals!!).
About 3 weeks before his departure date, things changed for Nick…

Nick & the guys at the SwimStrong 24,000 yard swim in 24 hours event!

On July 12th, Nick would have reported to the Missionary Training Center, but instead...his plans have been shifted again and he is beginning a rigorous treatment plan to BEAT THIS!

We want to wish Nick & his family the best of luck with good thoughts and prayers their way!

If you would like to donate to Nick & his treatment there are a few options:

- Donate at the GoFundMe Account.

THANK YOU to all who came to our Ivory Ridge Back-to-School Movie night as a fundraiser for Nick!! We were very pleased with the amount we raised & we could not have done it without all of your support!
Gorilla Carwash was a success as well!! Thank you for supporting Nick & getting your cars cleaned!
