Grab a bathing suit and swim cap and dive into the Mandell JCC’s Swim-A-Palooza on Sunday, August 26, 2012 from 2:00-6:00 p.m. at The Swim & Tennis Club, 4 Duncaster Road, Bloomfield, CT.  Proceeds will benefit the Special Olympics CT.

Organized by the Mandell JCC Sharks Swim Team as a community service project in support of the Special Olympics CT, Swim-A-Palooza participants will have the option of swimming for a half hour or longer during the event and enjoy other activities at The Swim & Tennis Club.

“The JCC has done a wonderful job of cultivating a philanthropic attitude amid our members. And now we have a chance for some of our most dedicated athletes – our swim team – to make a difference for Special Olympians in an Olympic year,” Andy Katz, Event Chair, said.  “It is our honor to swim for them so that they can enjoy the benefits of daily exercise that so many of us take for granted.”

The Mandell JCC’s Swim-A-Palooza is open to everyone.  Registration for individual swimmers is $18 for half an hour and $9 for each additional half hour.  For $36, swimmers may use a family lane for half an hour.  For more information on Swim-A-Palooza, registration or to become a sponsor, contact Steve Keith, swimapalooza@gmail.com or Annie Keith, 860-631-2455, akeith@mandelljcc.org.  For updates, follow the Mandell JCC on Facebook and Twitter.

The Mandell Jewish Community Center, Zachs Campus, 335 Bloomfield Avenue, West Hartford, CT, is open to everyone and supported by funds raised by the Jewish Federation of Greater Hartford, a recipient of funding from the Jewish Community Foundation of Greater Hartford, and a member of the JCC Association of North America.
