CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - North Carolina men's and women's swimming team held a benefit September 15 to aid in the fund raising for the Lyndsey's TLC Foundation, a foundation founded by and dedicated to Lyndsey McLaughlin, the sister of Tar Heel sophomore swimmer Jason McLaughlin.

Team members ran their own practice and organized specific fun events as part of a mock dual meet. Among the events was a relay where each member of the team had to swim two laps of the pool while wearing a T-shirt, then take off the shirt and pass it on to the next swimmer who could not enter the water until the T-shirt was put on.

Lyndsey's TLC Foundation is committed to improving the quality of life for those with Cyrstic Fibrosis. The Foundation's mission is to provide financial support for the care of individuals with CF.
