"Being part of the swim team has been so rewarding -- I've made great friends who I root for and compete against. My coaches have inspired me to dream big, to set goals, to work hard, and to have a positive attitude…all while having a ‘splash' of fun! Recently, I began to volunteer with the Y's Saturdays in Motion (SIM) program, which helps children with special needs. I so enjoy playing with the kids in gymnastics and then in the pool. This year, I helped organize and run the SIM fundraiser. I am proud that my team raised $4,600, which was $2,100 higher than goal! Because of these experiences, I am a better swimmer, student, friend, and person."
