Shelby Jane Hardebeck was a sixth grader at Peach Plains Middle School when she got sick and passed away. Her parents started the I Swim for Shelby Jane Hardebeck Annual Technical Swim Camp in her memory, holding a swim-a-thon to help raise money for the project.
After hearing about the swim-a-thon, former MSU student and Spartan swimmer Sam Schulze got inspired to run a program, also in Shelby’s memory. It’s a free competitive swim clinic for kids who already know how to swim. The event is Saturday, June 14, for ages ten and under and Sunday, June 15, for ages 11 and up. It runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. both days at the Grand Haven High School Aquatics Center.
