Hi everyone, this is Molly! I am setting out on a project again this year and need your support!
I am so excited to this year again be part of the Traverse City YMCA Breakers Swim Team! Swimming has helped me more than many will ever see! What you can see is in the last year I have learned a racing start from the blocks... AND I JUST competed in a meet where I swam events of EACH of the four strokes! I can swim BUTTERFLY, BACKSTROKE, BREASTSTROKE,and FREESTYLE now! Swimming is a bit harder for me than most but practicing every week and being coached by well prepared coaches has giving me this life improving opportunity!
Here’s where I need your help:
As a member of the team we all have to do our part and fundraise to keep our team alive! We fundraise for: special equipment, participation in fun competitions, as well as being able to send our coaches to special trainings to learn how to coach us the best way possible! (yes mom and dad pay for me to swim but that doesn’t cover ALL the needs our team has). This year I have committed to participating in an event where I get pledges to swim.
We call this the : Swim for FUNz!
(You might remember I did this last year and swam 50 lengths of the pool?!).
This is Year I set a goal of 75 lengths. I only have one hour to do this in and this is quite a big goal because that’s less than 45 seconds a length! Would you make a pledge to me? Any amount would mean the world to me (and my team). I promise to pay it forward and use your investment in me to do GREAT things through swimming! Did you know the 2nd leading cause of death in children under 14 has been drowning? I want to keep swimming and be part of supporting my team and coaches, would you be part of my support tribe?
My BIG Swim is Tuesday December 19th!
