Thank You for Supporting Mad Fitness October Charity Swim with Mike

Swim With Mike (SWM) would like to extend a big thank you to everyone who participated in a charity class in October at Mad Fitness SB! You helped Mad Fitness raise over $500 this month for local charities!

Swim With Mike is an annual swim-a-thon held to raise money for the Physically Challenged Athletes Scholarship Fund. Established in 1981 at USC, the Swim was organized by friends and teammates on behalf of Mike Nyeholt, a three time All-American swimmer, who was paralyzed from the chest down following a motorcycle accident.

 

SWM provides financial resources for advanced education that paves the way for physically challenged athletes to overcome their tragedies and realize their full potential. SWM raises the majority of their funds through an annual swim-a-thon campaign across the nation in over 47 different states. Over the last 37 years SWM has raised over $19 million for athletes attending universities who have overcome life challenging accidents or illnesses and are pursuing their educational dreams.

In 2017 over $1 million in scholarship funds were awarded to 56 current scholarship recipients, and Mad Fitness SB is proud to contribute! The University of California, Santa Barbara will be hosting the 4th Annual Gauchos Swim with Mike this upcoming Spring of 2018! You can stay up to date with all current news and updates regarding the Gauchos Swim with Mike event through the official campaign page. Want to learn more about how you can help?
