Event details

The 2010 Swim for Them event will kick off this Saturday (October 9) at the South HS pool at about 7:30am.  I (Greg W.) will say a few words, and then the three swimmers will be off to hours and hours of fulfilling our promised 10K swims.  We'll likely be in the water for 3.5-4.5 hours.  Come on out and cheer if you wish!

Our 10Ks are 10,000 meters, which equates to 11,000 yards, or 440 lengths in the 25-yd pool.  As of this writing, the three 2010 swimmers have raised a combined $3,324 for UMDF and St. Jude.  Averaging it all out, we'll each be swimming for about $2.52 per length per person.  Now that's some great motivation!

Photos will be up sometime the week after the event.  Wish us luck and send us prayers!  :-)
