Join the YWCA of Lower Cape Fear on Sunday, April 24th from 7:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. for the 1st Annual SWIM Against Racism.

This event is in conjunction with YWCA's signature campaign, STAND AGAINST RACISM, which raises awareness of the impact of institutional and structural racism and builds community among those who work for racial justice and the STAND AGAINST RACISM CHALLENGE (previously the 21 Day Racial Equity & Social Justice Challenge), which provides folks the opportunity to dedicate 21 days to the pursuit of racial justice starting on April 4.

The YWCA Aquatics Program is proud to host a 1 mile, ½ mile and 500 yard distance swim meet challenging swimmers to their personal best time or to simply set the goal to complete one of these distances.

Additional events offered include 1 mile pool walk and a 30 minute participation tread. Due to limited lanes, time and the unique distances offered, a maximum of 50 spaces are available - so register early!
