Description

“The Miles A. FitzGerald Pool”

 
Laura and Tim FitzGerald committed to supporting the YMCA of Northwest Louisiana’s Capital Campaign by aiming to raise $1 million dollars to support the new aquatics center and have it named for their son, Miles FitzGerald.

“Swim therapy has been such a big part of my son Miles’ life. This new aquatic center will give so many the same opportunity,” says Tim FitzGerald

“Water is a great equalizer as it eliminates the pull of gravity, relaxes tight muscles, provides resistance to increase strength, increases circulation, and decreases sensitivity of sensory nerve endings, thereby allowing children to learn movements that would otherwise be too difficult to perform on land.” – Cindy Murray, OTD, LOTR, Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center

Through “Just For Miles,” the FitzGerald’s honor their son by supporting various projects throughout the community.
