We've extended the deadline for donations counting toward team prizes, to 11:00pm on 4/22/17. Any donations after that will surely be accepted, but will not count toward team prizes.
What an awesome event we had yesterday! Thank you, swimmers, parents, and sponsors for working so hard both in and out of the pool. Our swimmers' passion and dedication to bringing slaves to freedom are so inspiring! Swimming 7720 laps altogether, and raising around $28K (total TBD) these kids are truly world-changers!!
Did you miss the Freedom Swim 2017 Kickoff Party yesterday? That’s OK! The following links will take you to the Promo Video and PowerPoint presentations, which will help catch you up. Check them out and contact us with any questions!

View All Teams' Current Donations to see how much money has already been given to IJM through the efforts of our swimmers, even starting before Kickoff! We are up to 57 registrants and are looking forward to seeing everyone Sunday afternoon!
Pledge sheets are available for downloading now! Swimmers can use these to help organize pledges received.
Registrations are coming in -- 36 spots filled, 60 left to go! Kickoff is just over 2 weeks away, and it will help us a lot if teams are mostly set by then, so that we can take team photos and help you get started on fundraising. So, if you or your friends are planning to register, please do so soon!
Our website is now ready for donations and pledges, and has team information! If you're registered but you don't see your name on our 2017 Teams page, that means we need one parent from your team to set up your IJM fundraising page. Contact us for more info!
