On July 25, Aronimink Swim Team set out to swim 5,000 laps and raise $5,000 for local families with cancer at their 1st annual, Laps for Leukemia event! The first batch of swimmers jumped in the pool around 8:30AM and what happened next was nothing short of #unexpectedamazingness.
The team exceeded their goal of $5,000, helping to pay household bills for 5 local families with cancer. And did we mention how many laps they swam? Over 7,500!
Aronimink’s head swim coach Stephanie Viola worked with BHH to help organize Laps for Leukemia and was excited with how the day turned out, saying,
“I am so proud of my team. We came together in a BIG way to help local families with cancer by doing what we do best..swimming!”
We wish the Aronimink Swim Team best of luck as they finish out their season and thank them for proving that hope floats!
