January Jam - MS Plunge for Parcells

Starting January 1st participants will track their yardage for the entire month to see who can "jam" the most yards into 31 days.

The January Jam was created to promote fitness through swimming while raising money for the Dave Parcells MS Fund. All donations, both entry and sponsorship, go to patients and families through the St. Vincent's Medical Center Foundation to help with expenses not covered by insurance as they undergo treatment for Multiple Sclerosis, in honor of Dave Parcells.

Participants submit and or save their swim workouts each day. Cumulative yardage will be tabulated for each swimmer based on their saved workouts during the month of January. During the month the results will be updated in real time on the web site. Participants will also be able to look up their current total as well as view their progress against other participants around the world. In addition there will be tables illustrating the participation for age groups.
