JCC Chicago LKSA Swim-a-thon

Jewish Community Centers of Chicago

Calling all JCC Swimmers | March 18, 2018

How many laps can you swim?  On March 18th, you'll get the chance to challenge yourself, meet Olympian Lenny Krayzelburg and earn some cool Swim-A-Thon gear while you splash for a great cause. 
All proceeds support scholarships for JCC Chicago's All-In Swim; a water safety and learn-to-swim program for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other disabilities. All-In Swim helps swimmers with disabilities gain comfort in the water and have fun!
Grab your swimsuit. Grab a friend. Everyone is welcome to participate! 
The more money you raise, the more gear you get, the more kids you help learn to swim!
