At age 15, Michelle was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) in March of 2014. She fought the hardest battle but unfortunately the illness took over on Tuesday January 13th, 2015.

In memory of Michelle, we are holding an open water swim to raise money towards her Scholarship Fund and to bring the swim community together to start off the season in a positive way.

Michelle had such a passion for swimming and anything she pursued. The scholarship will go to high school students who never stop smiling, go above and beyond for others, and have a passion for what they do like Michelle did. Like she always said,"Life is too short to be anything but happy."

Please join us for a morning full of fun and celebration of Michelle's life!

Join us for a breakfast party at the beach following the race. Please feel free to bring breakfast food of your choice. We usually have a little bit of everything. We love fruit and homemade breakfast items!
