OUR PROS

Our Cause

" The athletes and sponsors who come together for a weekend to support important causes like drowning prevention are a true inspiration. Last year, when I was battling for my life against two aggressive cancers, the JAX50 challenge gave me the hope and determination to keep fighting. It was incredible to know that so many people were supporting my fight to live, and it lit up my bleak hospital room. I am forever indebted to this amazing initiative, and I want to express my thanks to all who have participated and/or will participate this year. "

- Seun Adebiyi (2011)

JAX50 Sprint Dual Challenge

It is more than a dash for cash.  It is a chance for ordinary swimmers from eight years-old and up to compete at the same meet, in the same event, with twelve of the top swimmers in the sport, every one of them racing for the chance to swim in one of the two empty lanes against Olympians, national and NCAA champions, American and world record holders in swimming's premier test of speed - The 50 freestyle.

But this event is more than just a chance to race an Olympian. It is an opportunity to help many underprivileged families benefit from life-saving swimming instruction.

This one weekend swimming event is unlike any other event in the sport. Once racing is over, the eight guest swimmers will host a clinic and share their own stories of adversity, challenges, and eventual success.
