Introducing Daisy Mozgala, Fundraising Champ at Wacky Relay Day

Allow us to introduce to all our Swim for Smiles supporters 10-year-old Daisy Mozgala.

She was 6 years old when she first joined her local swim team and has enjoyed racing ever since  – not just on her swim team, but also with family and friends, including her good friend Mr. Z of Chapel Hill who, Daisy told us proudly, she once beat by five laps!

Every summer, the swim teams of the Chapel Hill-Carrboro area participate in the Swim for Smiles FUNDays of Summer.

Top fundraising boy Henry Benjamin excited about fundraising prize

Youth swimmers donate their time at the Chapel Hill TCBY to raise money for the Swim for Smiles Foundation, which benefits the N.C. Children’s Hospital. This year we had over 600 kids participate and raised nearly $20,000!

Daisy took part in the Swim for Smiles FUNDays of Summer, which culminated in the much-anticipated Wacky Relay Day event. In addition to all the crazy relays and festivities, the highlight of Wacky Relay Day for Daisy was finally winning an iPad, the award given to the top fundraising boy and girl. Daisy not only was the top-fundraising girl, but the fact that she raised $1,600 made her the top fundraiser overall.

Well congratulations, Daisy! Your hard work paid off! Not only did you and all the other participants work together to help a lot of kids at the N.C. Children’s Hospital, but you beat your own athletic and fundraising goals.

We’re proud of you and we’ll see you next year!

The top fundraising boy and winner of an iPad is Henry Benjamin who, due to extenuating circumstances, was unable attend Wacky Relay Day. Henry, we’re proud of your achievements, too, and look forward to crossing paths at another Swim for Smiles event in the future!
