Nearly 1,500 people turned out for the 25th annual “Swim With Mike” fund-raiser. Hundreds of attendees � including USC football Head Coach Pete Carroll (right) and members of his national championship team � took to the water for seven hours to raise more than $725,000 for the USC Physically Challenged Athletes Scholarship Fund. “This was the best event in our 25-year history because of the support of the USC Trojan Family,” said USC Associate Athletic Director Ron Orr, a former teammate of event namesake Mike Nyeholt (left).
