This Saturday, October 26, 2013 
This is a great event and a lot of fun for swimmers and parents alike. Our fundraising goal of $50,000 is a lofty one, so please go the extra mile to raise sponsorship. There are prizes for the top fundraisers! The money will be used to build new restrooms closer to the pool; this will be great for both swimmers and parents – no more trekking through the indoor pool when you’re in a hurry! Yeah.

Awards for top fundraisers: 
  • Prizes for top individual fundraisers, 
  • A party for the training group raising the most donations. 
Send the link for your personal ActiveGiving fundraising page to neighbors, family, and friends!  Did not get one? Contact
