I will be attending the JAX50 Sprint Challenge in Jacksonville FL on April 16th. I am very excited to make this trip.  More events like this need to be put on around the country. There is nothing like racing for a cause!

Below is some information on the event and if you’re interested in attending take a look at their website for more information!

The JAX50 Sprint Dual Challenge is more than a dash for cash.

It is  a chance  for  ordinary swimmers from  eight years-old and up to compete at  the same meet, in  the  same event, with  twelve of the top swimmers in the sport, every  one of  them racing  for the chance  to swim in  one of the two empty lanes  against Olympians, national  and NCAA champions, American  and  world  record holders in swimming’s premier test of speed – The 50 freestyle.

But this event is more than just a chance to race an Olympian. It is an opportunity  to help many underprivileged families benefit from potentially life-saving swimming instruction.

This  one  weekend  swimming event is  unlike any other event in the sport. Once racing is over, the twelve guest swimmers will host a clinic and share   their   own  stories of adversity, challenges, and eventual success.
