Carole Schiavo Kids Swim for Health

The Carole Schiavo Kids Swim for Health is an annual event held at the Mainland Recreational Center in Linwood, NJ. It 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.

“I am very proud to be a part of something that has impacted so many people," said MRA swim coach Michael Schiavo  "As a coach, it is really fun for me to watch the kids embrace the challenge and responsibility of the Kids Swim. They learn a lot about themselves, and the longer distances motivate them to train harder and improve their performance. This event gives kids an opportunity that they would never normally have.” 

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
