Area Swim Teams Take to the Water to Support LAPS

This summer many of the thousands of swimmers under the Coastal Carolina Aquatic Association participated in fundraisers to help support Lowcountry Aquatic Project Swimming by having swim-a-thons, lemonade stands and even a triathlon.

The participating teams raised almost $10,000 with Newington and Northbridge swim teams winning their leagues.  Special recognition to Newington swimmer Noah McKanna and Brickyard swimmer Lawton Rutledge for raising the most money for their teams.

Community support like these events help us continue to teach the love of swimming to children who may not be exposed to the sport. Plus the LAPS program instructions include life-saving, learn-to-swim techniques.

LAPS thanks all of those CCAA swimmers who participated and look forward to next year’s event!
