THE STORY:

Jenny Coyne and Patrick Trimble will be competing in the Chicago Big Shoulders 5k Swim on September 12, 2015 in Lake Michigan. Jenny is an early childhood educator at Seaton Elementary school in Washington, DC. Patrick is married to Jenny's sister, Kelly, a 1st Grade teacher in Chicago, IL at the School of Saints Faith Hope & Charity. As a family, we are passionate about learning and believe that nurturing a child's love of reading is essential to their future. Our goal is to raise $5,000 ($1 for each meter we will be swimming), which we will donate to Reading is Fundamental (RIF). While we will compete with each other in the water, we are united in our support for this worthy organization. From their website (www.readingisfundamental.org): "Reading Is Fundamental (RIF) is the largest children’s literacy nonprofit in the United States. We prepare and motivate children to read by delivering free books and literacy resources to those children and families who need them most. We inspire children to be lifelong readers through the power of choice. RIF provides new, free books for children to choose from and make their own. The seeds of inspiration in these books have motivated children to follow their dreams and achieve their potential. Yes, it seems incredible for a book to launch a life, but it happens every day as hungry, inquisitive young minds reach out and grab hold of the new people, places, and ideas that books bring them.
