GPYC Swim Team
Believe it or not, 7 out of 10 children in Detroit, cannot swim and are 3 times more likely to drown.
The Boll Family YMCA sponsors a charity who's mission is to "teach children in the city to swim and be safe around water." This charity was founded by the Boll YMCA lifeguards and is called "Detroit Swims."
As a member of MICSA, we have been asked by Detroit Swims to get involved in a fundraising contest among all 14 MICSA clubs, called the Corsan Challenge, with the goal this year to raise $30,000. The club that raises the most for this event, will host three time olympian (two gold medals, one silver, and one bronze) Peter Vanderkaay to put on an inspiring clinic in early July. Last year, Lochmoor Club won this event. The Challenge kicks off May 23 and runs through June 27.
The Gehlert's and the Housey's are chairing this event and sincerely hope you will consider donating to this great cause.
We have attached a link to Crowdrise, www.crowdrise.com/countryclubofdetroit the website you can use to donate. So click on the link, between May 23 and June 27 and help with this great cause.
Thanks for your consideration.
