(Huntsville, AL--) Jerry Damson Honda today donated $1000 to "Swim for Melissa."
Swim for Melissa is an annual event that will take place on Saturday, August 13, 2011 at the Hampton Cove Pool! It’s a non-competitive swim for kids 4 to 16 years old. During the event, each child will have the opportunity to swim as many laps as possible in a set amount of time. Registration is $20 per swimmer, and all participants will receive a free t-shirt, and additional prizes for money raised. At Swim for Melissa, the entire family is invited to enjoya day full of family fun– face painting, moon bounce and lots of other children's activities, food, and more!
All money raised at this year’s event will be used to provide four Giraffe Incubators, a Giraffe Warmer, an ABR machine, and an infusion device, as well as funding for the Family Support Program for the Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (RNICU) at Huntsville Hospital for Women & Children. The donations you collect will help us provide these items – and we’ve made it so easy! Just register online and create a page for yourself and your team. You can explain why you are swimming and even include a picture! Then, send the link to all of your family and friends and they can make their donation online.
