NEWS FLASH...June 30th, 2014   BHP Biliton has announced they are committing $10,600,000.

to the new YMCA building project to include the "Just for Miles" pool!!!

_____________________________________________________________________________________


The Broadmoor YMCA is in the middle of a $6.5m fundraiser to rebuild the facility, and within the new Y are naming opportunities. I want to raise $1m to have the swimming facilities named “The Miles A. FitzGerald Aquatic Center”.   I have already committed $100k and have someone who is matching that.

Swim therapy has been such a big part of my son Miles’ life.
This new aquatic center would give so many the same opportunity.

Why water?
Water is a great equalizer as it eliminates the pull of gravity, relaxes tight muscles,
provides resistance to increase strength, increases circulation, and decreases sensitivity of sensory nerve endings,
thereby allowing children to learn movements that would otherwise be too difficult to perform on land.

The bicycle event was a huge success! I rode 203 miles for Miles in 10 hours, 1 minute, 56 seconds, along with four other teammates. 78 other riders got pledges for Miles and rode various distances. Thank you to all the participants... what an awesome day we'll never forget!!!

We've added videos of the event. To watch, just go to the Videos link to view.

We are almost half way there. If you' like to help me reach the goal, please consider making a donation.


This was a great event! But we're not finished. Thanks everybody!
