IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Kids from all over the Midwest splashed down in Iowa City Saturday for a Swim Pink meet. Swim Pink is a organization that helps kids and families that have been affected by cancer and make sure all swimmers have the ability to continue in the sport regardless of the financial and emotional barriers the can come from battling the disease. Proceeds were given to families affected by cancer to help cover the costs of swimming.

"At Swim Pink we have done two things with swimming we're trying to educate some people outside the swimming world by bringing in some people that have been exposed to cancer and we're raising money for the Swim Pink Foundation," said Demian Werner of Lane Four Aquatics.

Funds from the Swim Pink organization help families pay for lessons, equipment and fees for meets and invitations.
