This inspiring team is fundraising to supply the kids with swim suits, caps, goggles, pool sandals, towels and a large bag to put everything in.
The Jersey Hammerheads Swim Team was founded by Maria McQuay and her husband so their Autistic son had something to do that he loved and to include other special needs children in the area to have an opportunity to be part of a team.

We are proud to support swimming related Dreamfuel campaigns with a $100 donation each and want to thank all of our premium members who make this possible!
Dreamfuel is the premier high-level crowd-funding platform specifically designed by and for athletes. They work with each athlete or athletic organization to tap into the community that surrounds them, thereby engaging new fans and supporters along the way.
There is an assumption that all Olympians, Olympic hopefuls and elite athletes have sponsors. This is far from the case, as 85% of Olympic hopefuls’ income is less than 15k USD / year. Dreamfuel’s goal is to provide athletes with a new revenue stream to support their incredible efforts outside of or in addition to the traditional means of sponsorships and governing body stipends.
