Swim-A-Thon in Endless Pool Raises Support for Camp Kids

Swim-A-Thon in Endless Pool Raises Support for Camp Kids

(PRWEB) January 10, 2013 Dr. Larry Grogins goal to swim 48 hours straight in an Endless Pool to raise money for The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp was lofty.
But Dr. Groginwith the help of 90 fellow swimmers and his band of Grogins Heroesaccomplished the feat to raise over $ 8,000 in support of the camp that provides children with serious illnesses a place where a kid can simply be a kid.
The Swim-A-Thon was a resounding success.
It was an inspiring atmosphere, said Grogin. I had the Endless Pool here at home and I thought it would be a cool way to get people involved in fundraising.
Grogin, who swam between five and six of the 48 hours himself, was impressed by the pools ability to keep pace for the two-day event.
A chiropractor and acupuncturist from North Jersey, the doctor has long been a proponent of aquatic therapy and water exercise.
My patients swim, walk in the water and use it for different types of movement. I modify the use of the pool to meet their needs.
Grogin himself trains in the Endless Pool for traditional triathlons and plans to use his pool to prepare for the Norseman, an extreme triathlon in 2013.
Rather than train simply to achieve personal goals, however, Grogin believes in giving back and making a difference for others.
The doctor and his wife, who both volunteer at The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, decided that swimming against the Endless Pool swim current would provide a particularly unique stationary fundraiser as compared to running or biking.
The Connecticut-based camp, started by actor Paul Newman, touches thousands of lives each year, truly making a difference for seriously ill children.
With a philanthropic mindset and an energetic spirit, Grogin showed what can be done with an outside-the-box approach and the involvement of a community.
He hopes to see the Swim-A-Thon grow in year two.
While Hurricane Sandy threw a wrench in the planning phase, Grogin was pleased with the results of the inaugural event. Next year, his goal is to raise $ 50,000, and several local swim clubs have already pledged to take their turn in the Endless Pool.
Dr. Grogins dedication to swimming and water exercise has not only changed the lives of many patients, but the lives of children as well.
