NEW JERSEY -

A team of Navy Seals swam across the Hudson River to support military veterans and their families Sunday morning.

More than 30 Navy Seals swam from Liberty State Park to Battery Park to benefit the G.I. Go Fund.

During the swim, the Navy Seals made stops at Ellis Island and the 9/11 Memorial.

The Seals honored those who died by doing pushups and pull-ups during each stop.  The Seals arrived at Battery Park just after 10 a.m. Sunday.
