Amazing job, Freedom Swimmers! A total of $57,321 was raised by 124 swimmers, with their amazing families and sponsors. This provides funding for more than eight IJM rescue operations, which have potential to free and restore hundreds of people. We're so proud of all your hard work! And big high fives for our top two fundraising teams, Hope Hurricane (with $7,282 raised) and Narwhals of Justice (with $6,883 raised). An outstanding effort on behalf of victims of slavery!

You guys swam so hard at the event Saturday. Way to go, giving your best efforts to bring awareness and hope, that modern-day slavery can and must be stopped! Can't wait to see the final totals!

Here's a great resource for face-to-face fundraising that one of our parents made: IJM/FS business cards to print and share! It's great to leave something with your friends and neighbors so they can check out the websites in their own time.
