Thanks for visiting the official website of the 6th annual Swim for Melissa, benefiting the Melissa George Neonatal Memorial Fund at Huntsville Hospital Foundation! (Click here!)
Swim for Melissa will take place on Saturday, August 13 at the Hampton Cove Pool! It’s a non-competitive swim for kids 4 to 16 years old. During the event, each child will have the opportunity to swim as many laps as possible in a set amount of time. Registration is $20 per swimmer, and all participants will receive a free t-shirt, and additional prizes for money raised. At Swim for Melissa, the entire family is invited to enjoy a day full of family fun – face painting, moon bounce and lots of other children's activities, food, and more!
All money raised at this year’s event will be used to provide four Giraffe Incubators, a Giraffe Warmer, an ABR machine, and an infusion device, as well as funding for the Family Support Program for the Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (RNICU) at Huntsville Hospital for Women & Children. The donations you collect will help us provide these items – and we’ve made it so easy! Just register online and create a page for yourself and your team. You can explain why you are swimming and even include a picture! Then, send the link to all of your family and friends and they can make their donation online.
Can’t make it to the Swim for Melissa event on August 13 but still want to participate? No problem! You can still register online and create a webpage to encourage others to give to the cause. You'll still get a t-shirt for signing up and the opportunity to win great prizes!
Thanks for taking part in the 6th annual Swim for Melissa. With your help, we can make a big splash for tiny babies!
