December 4, 2018













FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Third of Four Texas Lake Crossings While Nick to the Plus Continues his Endurance Challenges To Swim-Bike-Run for Those Who Can’t


  • New Braunfels fourth generation local to swim all the lakes in the area.


  • Extreme Endurance Challenges to benefit others.


New Braunfels, TX., Dec. 9, 2018- Nick to the PLUS, a community health, and fitness advocate continues his endurance challenges to raise awareness and funds for great causes. Nick Seidel, grandson of Edmund Seidel, former UT Swim Team Captain has chosen to swim-bike-run for others VS competing for finisher medals in Ironman.


On December 9th, Nick will swim the length of Lake Dunlap near New Braunfels, a 7-mile swim in crisp waters and weather. This will be the third of five endurance swims across the four lakes in the Guadalupe River System-

Done already- Lake Placid 5k swim and Lake McQueeney 5.5 mile swim (Up Stream).

To finish- Dunlap 7 miles and Canyon Lake 10 miles. In the Spring, Nick will cross all four lakes in succession as a finale equalling approximately = 24 miles (Virtual English Channel Crossing)


After over 25 years of high-level distance competition, Nick asked: “what’s next”? Endurance challenges have been the consistent theme in Seidel’s life. Recently, Nick has found the true meaning of giving back. These two motivations have lead Nick to do his own endurance challenges in his beloved Texas Hill Country playground while using the fundraising tool Crowdrise to help the many causes he cares about- St Jude Children’s Hospital, Children’s Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundation MD Anderson Cancer Center, It’s Time Texas, NAACP, Green Bronx Machine, Ainsley’s Angels, Meadow’s Center for the Environment...


Over the next year or two or more, Nick will continue into the bike, run and tri-ultra distance challenges after these swims. Follow and share Nick’s journey while helping him help others who can’t enjoy the gift of going the distance and living to the PLUS.


What is Nick to the Plus? Nick has competed in running distance and in triathlon at the High School, State, Collegiate, National, and World Level. After car accidents and life crisis, instead of being angry and depressed, he decided to Live to the Plus and pay his experiences forward.
