BENEFITING: MARJORIE F HUGHES FUND FOR CHILDREN INC
Who? Swimmers from the Chesterbrook, Donaldson Run, Knights of Columbus, Overlee, and Washington Golf and Country Club (WGCC) swim teams.
What? The swimmers are joining forces for the 2nd Annual S.P.L.A.S.H! (Swimming Pool Laps for Arlington School Health) swim-a-thon! As a special treat this year, Olympian (and Arlingtonian) Tom Dolan will be on hand to cheer on the swimmers, display his Olympic medals, and sign autographs. He may even get in the water and swim some laps with the kids!
When? Sunday, June 5th
Why? To raise money for The Marjorie Hughes Fund for Children (MHF), an Arlington non-profit/tax exempt organization that was founded to honor the work of Dr. Marjorie Hughes, a retired Arlington Public Schools (APS) school health physician. MHF is an all-volunteer organization that provides a vital link between community health resources and APS children living in low-income families. MHF works with APS and the Arlington Pediatric Center to identify school-aged children that have no health insurance or inadequate health insurance. Each year, MHF assists more than 100 Arlington children to obtain the medical care, dental care, vision care, hearing exams/aids, and medications that they wouldn't otherwise be able to afford. All of the donations raised for this event will go directly to the Marjorie Hughes Fund. All donations are tax deductible (EIN 541610490).
Thanks for your support!
