Swim-a-Thon to Benefit Two Organizations

Girls with Sole and the Rotary Club of Lakewood and Rocky River will be the beneficiaries of support from the sixth annual Swim-a-Thon on March 13 at the Rocky River Recreation Center pools from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.

Swimmers or those wishing to make a pledge should contact Harlan Radford, Rotarian and event coordinator, at harlanrjr@yahoo.com. The recreation facility is located at 21012 Hilliard Blvd.

Last year, nearly $3,000 was raised for the two organizations. Eighteen swimmers participated. In addition, there were 10 volunteers who provided supervision and registration and students from Rocky River High School who served as life guards and received service hour credits.

Girls with Sole is a Rocky River non-profit that is committed to providing programs to empower the minds, bodies and souls of girls who are at risk or have experienced abuse of any kind. Rotary is a worldwide organization that fosters the ideal of service, assisting people locally and across the globe.

Additional information on these two organizations can be found at www.girlswithsole.org and www.lakewoodrockyriverrotary.org.
