Masters Swimmers Go the Distance for Camp Shand
On August 24, the City Center Y Masters Swimmers took to the Millersville Lions Club pool for their third 100 x 100s swim fundraiser in support of Camp Shand. They believe in Camp Shand’s mission to ensure that disadvantaged youth have the chance to benefit from a camp experience, and as life-long swimmers, they’re passionate about the opportunities kids have at Camp to learn valuable life skills like swimming.
Elizabeth Hershey who helped organize the event said, “It was a beautiful morning to be outside and swim. We encouraged each other as the swim grew tedious and strenuous. It was all worth it for the kids!” The group has already raised $3,000 this year with a goal of collecting $5,000.
