Check out how much we’ve raised!!
I’m excited to be heading up our Annual Kids Kick Cancer fundraiser where all donations will go directly toward Camp Kemo.
Camp KEMO is a weeklong summer camp that provides a normal camping experience for children with cancer and their siblings.
The camp’s Mission Statement states, “Through sharing this experience with children with the same concerns, it is hoped that each child will gain strength and support. The focus of activities and interactions will be to emphasize the positive abilities of each child, to help increase the child’s self-esteem and to begin preparation for re-entry into the mainstream of life.”
Camp Kemo is able to provide this experience through donations of all levels from individuals and/or organizations. Murraywood Swim supports this effort and asks our families to join in the cause for this Camp that impacts so many.
We will be collecting the money all day Friday June 24. We will begin during our kids kick cancer event from 8am to 10:30am. As well as during normal pool hours Friday.
Please make all Checks Payable to Camp KEMO!
If you have any questions, feel free to ask William Mohon!
Thank you for your help in supporting Camp Kemo through Kids Kick Cancer!
Deadline to order is June 26, 2022. Click here to order now!
Last Friday we held our first meeting of the Pool Social Committee. Some members are calling this committee the Pool Fun Team and that is a correct name! 26 of your fellow members have begun planning a summer filled with fun activities. Our Pool calendar on the website will be changing quite a lot so check the website often – we’ll update activities as we get them planned. Now is a good time to emphasize that the committee is open to all who want to join the team – please do join us either by suggestions or volunteering or both!
Please welcome our new Pool Manager, Tim Carmody. Tim is very familiar with Murraywood, having coached the DFHS high school swim team which practices at our facility, for several years. Originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, Tim came to school to USC in 1987 and has stayed ever since. He has worked around local pools and swim teams off and on including managing Hunting Creek Swim and Raquet Club. In addition, he is finishing his 27th year of teaching elementary school here in Irmo. He is looking forward to meeting our Murraywood families!
Deadline to order: Monday, May 31, 2021
