In February, The FOBY Swim Team mourned the loss of one its valued members, as Roberta Blaszczyk, lost her battle with cancer. In order to keep her memory alive and to keep her daughter, Alexandra, as part of our FOBY Family, the swim team and the YMCA of Western Monmouth County have partnered to found the “Roberta Blaszczyk Memorial Swim Fund”. All donations received will go towards Alexandra’s FOBY program fees and any related swim team costs. Currently, we have achieved 61% of our goal!
