1 min


Summer is a magical time. Some may say it is even a time for dreams to come true. Too cliche? We think not. Because Make-a-Wish Idaho and Fin Fun are teaming up next week for a Swim for Wishes event to do just that.

Swim for Wishes will take place at Rexburg Rapids August 9.

Swim for Wishes

On August 9, Make-A-Wish Idaho and Fin Fun Mermaid Tails will be splashing down at Rexburg Rapids for a special summer fundraising event. From 5:45 – 8:45, there will be special prizes, giveaways, and other activities available at the park.

By fundraising to help children with medical conditions, you can support the cause of fulfilling wishes and also get various prizes. Here is what you can receive:

  • FREE ENTRY for you and one guest for every $20 you raise
  • Fin Fun Shark Fin for the first 100 people who raise $100
  • Fin Fun Mermaid Tail for the first 50 who raise $200

There will be plenty of activities available for guests of all ages. Aside from access to all the park features, there will be kid-friendly activities, a photo booth with a “fabulous mermaid,” and a FinFun Mermaid Tail try-on area. Z103 will also be there live providing music all evening.

A recognition ceremony will also take place, highlighting the top fundraisers.

The Power of Dreams

Make-A-Wish Idaho sums up the purpose and power of the event best.

Fin Fun Mermaid Tail and Make-A-Wish Idaho have a shared belief in the power of DREAMS!” Make-A-Wish Idaho says on its website. “Together, we want to raise funds to bring hope, strength, and joy to children in Idaho who are facing life-threatening medical conditions.”

For more information, visit the website. If you wish to contribute to the goal of raising $15,000 for these children, donate to or join the fundraiser.

Join us August 9 at Rexburg Rapids from 5:45 – 8:45 p.m. for Swim for Wishes to celebrate the magic of summer and the power of dreams.
