Lap-A-Thon Raises Funds for Field Trip

lap_thon

Our Blue Rays swim team held their most successful lap-a-thon fundraiser to date, raising a whopping $900 for their annual field trip to Raging Waters. Fifteen team members took to the pool this month for the fifth annual event with Jonathan Ong, 11, eventually emerging as the top lap swimmer, completing 64 laps in 20 minutes! He received a Subway gift card for his efforts. Highest fundraisers were Amber Elias, 9, who raised $300; Emma Black, 11, who raised $234, and Chloe Ludden, 10, who raised $100. All the monies raised at the event will help pay for tickets and transportation to the water park in San Dimas. Thanks go out to our tween members and our Blue Rays parents who helped organize and run the lap-a-thon.
