On May 17th 2014 we celebrated the life of the always enthusiastic and talented Grey Liston in beautiful Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. It was the sight of the first annual memorial pier-to-pier swim. The air was crisp and the water a little chilly. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect coastal southern day.
The event started at Johnnie Mercer's Pier and finished at Crystal Pier. It is a length of Atlantic Ocean Grey knew very well as a member of the UNC-Wilmington Swim Team and where he stood watch as a Wrightsville Beach Ocean Lifeguard.
Thank you to all that took part, supported and volunteered. We hope to see you next year for the second annual Stoked 2 Go Out swim to be held on Saturday, May 16th 2015. Details will be posted here soon and on our Facebook page.
