Operation Ripple Effect Swimming Challenge

From 9:00AM to 4:00PM

Our Foundation and this event were created in memory of 4 year old Raylan Barr who passed away in September due to a swimming accident in Lakewood. So we started Rays the Barr Foundation as a way to provide the kids in the community with affordable/free swimming lessons, life jackets, and other water safety education. Operation Ripple Effect is a swim-a-thon style event that we are using as our primary fundraiser. We are hoping to get 100 swimmers registered for the event! The day of event, we will also be holding a basket raffle and silent auction at the Jamestown YMCA. Here is the link to the registration: is the link to the Facebook event:
