Swim To A Wish is a fundraiser that was started by Wish Dad and Campus High School Swim Coach, Kelly Kennedy, in 2013. The concept is simple: swim team members join together to swim a 100-mile marathon in relay format over the course of a weekend. The impact is huge: in its five year run, the event has spread from one school to ten schools and has raised more than $160,000 for Make-A-Wish® Kansas. Funds are raised through individual and corporate donations.
The sixth annual event will take place across the state in February 23-25, 2018. The swimmers will begin Friday afternoon and continue throughout the weekend until they complete the 100-mile goal. The teammates will swim in relay race form. Each swimmer will complete 71 lengths of the pool before tagging the next swimmer who will then swim 71 lengths, equal to one mile. The swimmers swim continuously until each one completes 20 miles, resulting in 100 total miles! Only one swimmer will be in the water at a time.
