The Mount Desert Island YMCA Sharks Swim Team located in Bar Harbor, ME will be diving into 'Shark Infested Waters' on February 7th. The Sharks annual and largest fundraiser is held at the Lenny DeMuro Swimming pool on Super Bowl Sunday. All money raised for the Aquathon goes directly to the Swim Team to pay for salaries, travel expenses, meet fees, pool costs and other fees that arise during the season. The MDI YMCA Sharks, alumni, friends, family, local businesses and the community of MDI have been extremely giving to annual Aqauthon year after year. Last year, the Sharks placed 3rd at both the YMCA State Meet and the Maine JO's (highest place since 1992). For more information on the Sharks go to
