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.
