The Mercer County Board of Chosen Freeholders recently presented members of the Princeton Tigers Swim Club and their coach, Miles Cava, with certificates of honor in appreciation of their fundraising efforts to benefit the YMCA of Trenton. Coach Cava was quick to credit club member Christina Samios for coming up with the idea to raise money by swimming laps for pledges. Christina was inspired by a cousin who raised money for charity in a similar way by playing squash and wanted to give back to the community through her favorite sport. Approximately 25 members of the club participated by swimming for three straight hours and each participant received a certificate. The club expects this to be a yearly event and plans to reach out to other swim teams to join their efforts next year.
