UPDATE: Swim-a-palooza swimmers raised $3,381.45. One hundred kids will take swimming lessons at the Y thanks to these awesome athletes!

Tuesday, September 24, fifty-six swimmers, mostly with the MICHIANA FAMILY YMCA Stingrays Swim Team, took part in a SWIM-A-PALOOZA to raise money in support of the Y and to help strengthen the foundations of community.

Swimmers and volunteers raised $3381.45 for the scholarship program at the Y by gathering pledges for the number of lengths they could swim in 15 minutes. Collectively, they swam 18.4 nautical miles (1497 lengths) with a few more pledge sheets to be counted.


All throughout this week -- ROCK THE Y WEEK -- we are encouraging our members to submit their own stories of transformation, inclusion, and discovery fostered by their involvement with the Y.

Today's story is from an eleven-year-old member of the Stingrays Swim Team.
