RANDOLPH, NJ- The Randolph YMCA has announced a series of events to benefit its 2nd Annual “Swim for Sally” charity fundraiser to build a new ADA (American with Disabilities Act) Locker Room.
All events are open to the public.
“Swim for Sally” is an annual swim event held in memory of Sally Schenkman, a long-time Y member who passed away last year. Sally was not only an amazing wife, mother, friend, and award-winning nurse at Morristown Medical Center, she was also an avid swimmer who worked out at the Y daily.
Together with the Schenkman family, the Randolph YMCA is raising money to build the Sally Schenkman ADA Accessible Locker Room in her memory. The locker room is part of the Y’s “Building What Matters” Capital Campaign.
