Fundraiser: Todd Jackson's Battle with Laryngeal Cancer/WSAC Elite Athlete Fund
Two Great Causes, One Big Swim!
Saturday, April 27 at the Walter Schroeder Aquatic Center
A swimming fundraiser was planned to support the Walter Schroeder Aquatic Center's Elite Athlete Fund (to help underwrite the costs associated with elite athletes striving for international - level atheltic success) but when Todd Jackson (part of the great Schroeder - Jackson family) fell victim to laryngeal cancer it was clear that this day's swim would have to serve two purposes. Watch the video below for the story about Todd's long term contributions to the Milwaukee swimming community and get ready to swim on Satuday, April 27. If you do not have an athlete to sponsor but you want to support either cause - please note that on the form below.
Swimmers interested in completing the 1 hour swim can direct supporters to this article for an easy way to contribute or they can collect contributions on their own. Be sure to define where you want your funds to go. Many will want to help both causes and may split however you want.
Available swim times (7-9 AM, 9-11 AM, 11-1 PM) and Sunday 1:30 PM
