Swim for Fin

Today we had a fundraiser for Finley that was organized by the Girl Scouts here in our new town.  Finley's biggest fan, Maria Davis, has been responsible for all the fundraising here, and we will be eternally grateful to her.

Today she had organized this really cute fundraiser she called "Swim for Fin".  They rented a pool from 9-12:30 this morning, and 70 of our closest friends (ha) came and swam with us. 

The fundraiser raised $1400 for our foundation, and we had a WONDERFUL time.  Enjoy the pictures!

Finley had a good time in the shallow end playing around:
