Cancer Awareness Swim Meet
This past spring a member of our swim family was diagnosed with pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors. She is an amazing teammate, swimmer, and person. On October 24 our team along with one of our sister teams, Wayland Union, will participate in our annual Cancer Awareness meet and all donations will go to help Lydia with her fight with cancer as well as allow Lydia to make a donation to a charity of her choice, assisting other children with cancer.
Please help us show our support for Lydia by going to www.TeamLydia.com to purchase our #TEAMLYDIA shirts and/or making an online donation. Also, please come to our meet on October 24 at the Hastings CERC to show your support for Lydia and all cancer fighters! More details can be found here.
Applebee's is doing a donation night on October 27th from 2-8 pm with the donations going to negative balances for Hastings, Delton, TK, and Maple Valley. 20% of every dollar spent is going to paying off negative balances in these districts.
