40th Annual Carole Schiavo Kids Swim for Health

The Carole Schiavo Kids Swim for Health is sponsored by the Auxiliary of Shore Medical Center – the hospital’s original fundraising organization.

It began in 1982 as the Kids for Kids Swim-A-Thon, which originally funded special pediatric projects at Shore Medical Center. The first year, swimmers raised $8,500, and to date, the group has raised nearly $300,000, with proceeds now going toward cancer care at Shore. In 1989, the event was selected as one of the top ten fund raising ideas in the United States by the American Hospital Association

In 2017, the Auxiliary of Shore Medical Center recognized the MRA’s long-time commitment by presenting them with the New Jersey Hospital Association Partnership in Volunteering award for continuing the tradition and motivating young fundraisers to support healthcare in their community.
