The Campus High School swim team presented a check for mroe than $5,000 to a local Make-a-Wish student.
Sydney Joorabchi is a jr. high student in Haysville. She will use the money to go to Disney World.
The five-member swim team swam 100 miles earlier this month to raise money for Sydney. Each of them swimming a mile at a time in relay-race form.
They say they never expected to raise as much as they did, and they're happy it is going to a good cause.
Sydney says it's nice to know people are thinking about her, even if they don't know her.

They started swimming Friday, and won't stop all weekend. Seniors on the Campus High swim team will swim 100 miles for the Make-A-Wish foundation.
The five teammates will swim in relay race form, each completing a mile at a time. The first swimmer jumped in the water Friday afternoon, and the team will likely swim until Sunday.
Their coach said he's proud to work with a great group of leaders.
"The season ended two weeks ago," said Kelly Kennedy. "They've coming in this week to stay in shape just for this. They're a great group of boys and this is a great way to end their swimming careers on Campus."
The money raised will support a wish from the Haysville area.
