This weekend, join the Lambda Sigma National Honor Society at The University of Toledo to have some fun in the pool while raising money for a good cause.

The second annual UT Laps for Diabetes will take place Saturday, Feb. 6, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, Feb. 7, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Student Recreation Center.

All funds raised will be donated to Camp Ho Mita Koda, the oldest summer camp in the nation for children with diabetes that is sponsored by the Diabetes Partnership of Cleveland.

On Saturday, there will be events throughout the day; these will include a diving contest, water basketball knockout, relay races, a biggest splash competition and more. Winners will receive small prizes.

On Sunday, four large awards will be given out for the most combined laps swam by an organization, organization with the most participants, most money raised by an individual, and most laps swam by an individual.

Those who sign up can reserve a lane for half an hour to swim laps, or sign up as a non-swimmer and show up whenever they want to take advantage of the activities as well as the pool’s water slide, low dives, platform, sauna, hot tub and more. Lambda Sigma is asking that those who sign up donate at least $10, but more is appreciated.
