THE STORY:

Hi, my name is Allison, and I am fundraising for my swim organization, Dad's Club.  We have a VERY old facility that desperately needs updating!  With your help, kids can hopefully experience a cleaner and better swim facility that houses the most awesome coaches, families, and swimmers!  :)

Our family has been through a lot these past 2 years with the passing of my Grandma (my dad's mom) due to ovarian cancer.  I miss her a lot.  I know she is with me all the time.  My parents were also separated and recently divorced in that same 2 year timeframe.

Swimming has given me a sense of peace, comfort, joy, and safety all my life but especially during these last 2 years.  The water gives me solace.  I can control who I am and what I do in the water (no matter what else is going on in my outside world).  Sometimes the harsh reality of the outside world doesn't always let a kid do that - to be free of expectations and to just be a kid.  I swim for fun, for friendship, for exercise, and I love that my parents don't pressure me about anything else (I'm sure my mom would love to though.  Haha).

I get to swim for an hour on Saturday and squeeze in as many laps as I can for this fundraiser while having a blast doing it.  If you feel compelled to support me, I would love to swim for you too!
