A Swim-A-Thon will be held at 7 a.m. Monday, Dec. 8, at the Providence YMCA-Ball Family Center, 8601 Parallel Parkway.
Sean Cassidy, a lifeguard who will become a swim instructor at the Y, will begin the Swim-A-Thon on Monday.
Cassidy is passionate about water safety, and he is doing something about it.
“The No. 1 thing we can do to keep kids safe around water is teach them to swim,” he said.
Cassidy has pledged to swim laps until $1,000 is raised for children in Wyandotte County.
People interested in donating may visit the Y or call 913-378-9622.
