Swim for the Cure Jan. 10

Waukee High School Boys Swimming Team will hold their first annual Swim for the Cure meet on Jan. 10 against Southeast Polk.  The meet will start at 5 p.m. at the Waukee YMCA, located at 210 North Warrior Lane, Waukee, IA 50263

Although this is only third year for the Waukee High School (WHS) swimming program, the boys team is currently ranked seventh in the state with all three relays and numerous events in the top 24.

“We have relied on the generosity of our local business and supporters,” Daniel Briggs, Head Swimming Coach said. “We have tried to give back through team socials and nights out with the team. Now we are reaching out with hopes the community will help us in the endeavor to fund cancer research to find a cure.”
