Peaks to Portland Swim to Benefit Kids

I’m excited to compete in the YMCA of Southern Maine’s Peaks to Portland Swim to Benefit Kids on July 28, 2018. (It’s one of the oldest open water swims in the United States – 2.4 miles!) In addition to racing, I’m raising money in support of children at the Y.

All funds raised by me will help the Y deliver life-changing programs that inspire young potential, promote academic success, prevent drowning, and help build healthy, confident kids. As you know, since last year my family and I decided to spend more time in Maine during the summers. Both of my kids attended Y summer camps and had a blast. The work the Y does to help the local community is amazing. Sarah and I have been very impressed with the programs that the Y offers to help kids that are not as lucky as ours. Please consider supporting this incredible cause.

I have committed to raise money for the Y’s youth, but I can only do this with your support. Will you join me in ensuring that all kids have the opportunity to thrive?

Please support my campaign today and help us make a positive difference in the lives of some very deserving children. I’ll be thinking of you and the kids we’re helping as I plunge into Casco Bay this summer!  

Thank you!

P.S. I was surprised to learn just how many youth programs the Y runs – summer camp, school age child care, swim lessons, preschool, early learning readiness, swim team, preschool, pre-K, full-day child care, youth fitness, adaptive youth sports, diabetes prevention mentoring, and more!

Even more impressive - last year they provided $2.1 million in financial assistance to 10,000 youth, individuals, and families to ensure full community access to their programs!
