Linnea in Junior Olympics!!

$1,005 of $2,000 goal

Raised by 31 people in 42 months
Linnea Ritchie has qualified for the Junior Olympics in Swimming!  We are very proud of her achievement, and want to give her every opportunity to succeed.  However, the costs associated with the various "away" competitions are beyond our budget.  
Her Qualifying event is the 50M Freestyle, (and the freestyle relay,) with a qualifying time of 34.61.  It is amazing that this is only her second year on the Northern York County YMCA  Manta Rays swim team!  Linnea shows great potential.  Your donation will help with the costs associated with attending the State Championships, National Championships and Junior Olympic competitions.  You will also foster her future in swimming by allowing her to train at the Michael Phelps aquatics center in Saco, ME.  Thank you for your support, we appreciate your help.  Go Linnea, Go!!!

Greetings to Linnea's Supporters Via our Go Fund Me Campaign,
We are finally in a position to repay your generous support of our daughter, Linnea's bid to enter the Junior Olympics. As the Maine State Champion in the 50 Freestyle, and the anchor of the same in the 50 Freestyle relay team, we are proud to say that with your support, she placed sixth in the Maine Junior Olymics, in the 50 Freestyle, earning herself a medal (first place in the prior heat, eithth lane, which made the croud roar!)
Also, she anchored the third place relay team, and made the honor list as a most improved swimmer. Linnea had only been a competitive swimmer for two years prior to these achievements. She has been offered a scholorship to the Michael Phelps Center to continue her goals in swimming, and she continues to enjoy the sport, on behalf of a team in Kennebunk, Maine.
We really appreciate that you rallied behind her, and would like to repay you for your generosity, now that we have that opportunity. I have envelopes ready, along with checks, if you would kindly reply with name and address to send. Wishing the best to all, with many thanks and best wishes. She really enjoyed the experience, as did we.
Brian, Sally and Linnea Ritchie
