The Founder's Challenge

Jamaica Miller, the founder of Wheels of Hope, has challenged herself to swim lots of laps this summer to get into better shape and to help raise funds for Wheels of Hope. She is asking friends and family to pledge a donation for each lap that she swims in the 6 weeks between July 21st and September 1st. So far, in the 4 weeks since the challenge began, she has “clocked” 178 laps. Her pool is 34 feet long and one lap is down to the end and back. Jamaica swims with her helpers, who keep her oriented in the pool and who visit with her and tell her stories while they swim. Jamaica has committed to trying to increase the number of days that she swims and the number of laps that she swims. A donation of any amount would be greatly appreciated. Pledges and donations can be made on our website at, through email at, or using this google form:

First day count: 26 laps! Go Jamaica!
