Lane 8 is a fundraiser to level the playing field for inner-city youth in the sport of swimming by Adam Monk. The name Lane 8 stems from the idea that in the sport of swimming, the swimmer in lane 8 is the underdog of the race.
One of the biggest goals for Lane 8 is to show these kids not everyone has the same odds of success, but you find a way and never pity yourself.
Where does the money go?
– Membership fees for the five selected athletes
– Basic competition suits for the athletes to wear during practice and meets
– Nice pair of goggles to last an entire season
– Multiple swim caps for each athlete to wear for practice and meets.
These are the basic necessities. Goals beyond this would include matching warm-ups or new swim caps for city finals.
