noun - Memorial swims are open water swimming events or races that serve as a focus for memory of something or someone, usually someone who is deceased. Memorial swims include events that celebrate the legacy of a race founder, commemorate a local individual or young child who died tragically (either in the water or on terra firma), or raise awareness of a personable or inspirational athlete, coach or administrator.

The most common type of memorial swim incorporates the name of the individual in the event title. Sometimes, funds are raised to support a preferred charity of the individual.
