Aronimink Swim Team Dominates HOPE Week!

July 14, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm at

From July 11th-14th, Aronimink Swim Club hosted their 3rd annual H.O.P.E. Week. The wonderful swimmers and coaches of the Aronimink Swim Team raised money by swimming laps, sellings 50/50s, and BHH merchandise. This amazing group raised over $3,700 (and counting!) for local families with cancer!
asccccThis event lasted an entire week filled with two swim meets, swimming, dancing, and fun! Throughout the week the kids learned about 4 different values that started formed the letter H.O.P.E. They learned about Honor by purchasing a BHH swim cap, so as they were swimming they were reminded of people battling cancer. They demonstrated optimism on the second day by making notes of Hope and making bracelets, letting the families know that someone was thinking about them. On the third day they expressed Perseverance by dedicating their swim meet to someone they know who is affected by cancer and showing them that Hope floats. On the last day they exhibited Energy by having a lap-a-thon dance party to celebrate all of their fundraising efforts throughout the week!hopeweekschedule
During the Laps of Hope dance party, ASC Swim Coach, Patrick Maguire, was asked if he enjoyed H.O.P.E. Week.

 “I love this week. It’s a great event. It’s awesome to raise money and see the kids come out, everyone’s in full force for it. It’s awesome to see all the support.”

It’s incredible to see not only the kids get excited for the week, but also the coaches! The coaches of the Aronimink Swim Team do an amazing job of getting the kids excited to raise money and swim laps for families with cancer.
Stephanie Viola, Head Coach at ASC and great friend of BHH, says…

“I love Bringing Hope Home. I’ve been involved with Bringing Hope Home I think for about 5 years now. I think it’s one of the best organizations around because we know where the money is going, we know that the money is helping families that really, really need it. So, it is near and dear to my heart just because I’ve been working with Caitlin, Amy, and Lauren forever. It really is amazing.”

It’s inspiring to see all the coaches get so excited for H.O.P.E Week and want to support families. But, the kids also play a huge part in providing unexpected amazingness throughout the week. Kids spend the entire week raising money and swimming laps.
Chiara Mancuso is a member of the Aronimink Swim Team, and was asked how she personally contributed to H.O.P.E. Week.
“Well, yesterday at our swim meet I bought a Bringing Hope Home swim cap for $10, and then today I donated $50 to Brining Hope Home. I also bought a pair of sunglasses for $7.”
Just like Chiara Mancuso, many of the kids bought BHH swag, fundraised, and swam lap of hope for our amazing families.
It’s safe to say that the Aronimink Swim Club’s H.O.P.E. was filled with unexpected amazingness! Bringing Hope Home would like to thank the swimmers and the coaches for being truly incredible supporters!
