In the heart of Chicago, Sheridan Shockers Swim Team is creating a swim-a-thon event to raise money for basic equipment and team apparel. The Sheridan Shockers is a diverse swim team that ranges from ages 5 to 18 and is home to some of the fastest swimmers in the city. There are 53 swimmers and they practice daily from 4:30 to 6:00pm, Monday through Friday.
Not only does this team keep city kids active (obesity now affects 17% of all children and adolescents in the United States - triple the rate from just one generation ago) but it directly correlates to higher academic scores.
The Swim Team will swim as many laps as they can non-stop for 30 minutes. Two awards will be presented during the swim-a-thon. The first award to the person that has the most pledges and the second award to the swimmer that swims the longest.
Thank you for taking the time to review this opportunity to make a BIG difference in the life of a child.
