COLUMBIA, Ky. – The Lindsey Wilson swim teams take to the pool on Monday to help raise money for pediatric sarcoma research as part of the nationwide Hour of Power Relay initiative.
The objective of the Hour of Power Relay is to hold a "Leave it in the Pool" practice that consists of continuous relays of any stroke for one-straight hour, with the objective of keeping all relays in each lane on the same length.
Lindsey Wilson swimmers will once again team up with members of the men's and women's swim teams from Campbellsville (Ky.) to help raise money for a good cause. The two teams recently participated in the successful Dance-Maroon event in Campbellsville, an event organized to help raise money for pediatric cancer research through the St. Baldrick's Foundation.
The Hour of Power is set to begin at 4 p.m. CT on Monday in the Holloway Health and Wellness Center Natatorium. Donations are being accepted at the event during the relays, or you can make a donation to any Lindsey Wilson swimmer or online at www.tedmullinfund.org.
The money raised at the event will be donated to the Ted Mullin Fund for Pediatric Sarcoma Research at the University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital.
This marks the 11th year for the Hour of Power relay initiative, which has grown from 15 teams to 178 teams and raised over $630,000 dollars to support research in the last 10 years.
