Your child can participate in an endurance-challenging, swim-run event later this summer at the Door County YMCA. The first-ever Swim-A-Thon will be held on Saturday, August 6, and will be open to any child eight to eighteen years old. Aquatics Director Nicole Shepard says Door County Y Swim Coach Mike McHugh and the swim team are organizing the competition that starts with laps in the pool and then moves outside to Peterson Park for the run portion.
The age categories are broken into two-year increments. More information will be made available soon, with registration starting in early July. You can listen to the entire conversation with Nicole Shepard about the Swim-A-Thon and the opportunities to become a lifeguard at the Door County YMCA on the podcast page here.
