NF Swim-A-Thon

Get your goggles out! It’s time to sign up for the third annual swim-a-thon to benefit NF.

The 12 hour swimming marathon will take place at:

Shipley’s Choice Swim & Tennis Club

947 Rustling Oaks Drive

Millersville, MD 21108

Sunday, August 30, 2009 from 7:30 am to 7:30 pm.

We will have a pancake breakfast and a pizza dinner for all participants.

It’s loads of fun for kids and families, and the money raised is for a great cause:

Neurofibromatosis Mid-Atlantic

NF stands for neurofibromatosis, a disorder that causes tumors throughout the body.

Shipley’s Choice 5th grader Matthew Freeman bravely battles NF every day.

Sign up to swim a 15 minute block of time – you may sign up for multiple blocks if you’re

in good shape! You may also share the slot with family members or friends. Guests who

are participating are admitted free and the entire pool complex opens early at 7:30 pm

for this very special event. Our goal is to have 2 lanes of continuous swimming for 12 hours.

If you’d like to attend or help with the swim-a-thon, email Penny Freeman at:

Even if you’re not a swimmer come out to help cheer them on and meet others

coping with the challenges of NF!
