WMS does not have a swim team, but that isn’t stopping us. Our soccer, cross country, and mountain biking teams will all be out in the snow for a continuous hour of activity while those in theater and Farm & Forest cheer them on.
Last year’s event included 111 college and university programs representing 38 conferences across NCAA Division I, II and III, and Independents, along with 54 high-school and club teams. Also participating were a Masters team in Sweden and The American International School of Muscat, Oman.
This year’s numbers are on pace to match last year’s totals. All those athletes will hit the pool with a shared goal—to “think outside the pool” in order to increase awareness about sarcoma and raise money for the Ted Mullin Fund for Pediatric Sarcoma Research at the Comer Children’s Hospital at the University of Chicago. So far, WMS has raised $1,013.
