DeKalb-Sycamore co-op swimmers help out

The DeKalb-Sycamore high school co-op girls and boys swim teams have participated in a number of community service projects this spring after their swim seasons.

The team volunteered at Relay for Life, a new event for many of the members. Volunteering at this event, which raises money to fight cancer, built off their fundraising efforts in the fall for the Cure for Grace fund, an organization in honor of former teammate Grace Waller.

The team also volunteered at DeKalb County Hospice and spent time at the Egyptian Theatre as ticket takers, ushers and concession workers.

Most recently, the team spent time at Feed'em Soup, filling roles as table servers, members of the serving line, food runners, drink fillers, dessert distributors and table bussers. They even had dish duty.

"Overall, we have had very positive experiences volunteering throughout the community and are eager to continue our efforts throughout the summer and into next season," coach Leah Eames said. "I have been very proud of the team’s energy and excitement about getting out into the community and giving back.

"Some members of the team have even expressed an interest to return individually to the organizations we have worked with and volunteer on a regular basis. I couldn’t be more proud."
