THE STORY:

Hello Friends.  I am a former Navy Aviation Rescue Swimmer/Aircrewman, AIRR's for short.  During this years Swim for Them, on August 29, I will be swimming a 10 kilometer swim to raise money for the LT Michael P. Murphy USN Memorial Scholarship Foundation.  This foundation has awarded several scholarships since its beginnings.  Including to Sailors in order to better themselves after serving our country.  I encourage you to please read about this foundation at www.murphfoundation.org  

Thank you for your support,

James Monroe

 

In the last five years, Swim for Them participants have raised over $92,000 in support of causes they love. What do you care about? Who do you love? Help us help them!

 

How it works:

  • Swimmers register for the 6th Annual Swim for Them, to be held on August 29, 2015 at the Kingsport Aquatic Center. Event distances range from 500 yards (20 lengths) to 10 km (440 lengths).
  • Immediately following registration, swimmers set up their own fundraising pages for the charity or cause of their choice.*
  • Swimmers train for their event distance between now and August 29.**
  • During the training period, swimmers promote their causes and fundraisers among family, friends, and colleagues, who will hopefully join forces to show love and support to their favorite swimmer. 
  • On Friday, August 28, swimmers and guests gather at Bays Mountain for an evening of fellowship, celebration, and carb-loading. That means food!
  • On Saturday, August 29, we swim!
  • Charities and causes receive awareness and support. Swimmers receive the satisfaction of helping make the world a better place. It's that simple.

So, are you ready to help the cause you love through your swimming? Register for Swim for Them 2015!

 

More captivating detail:

* CrowdRise brings something new to Swim for Them fundraising. Swimmers can now support IRS-recognized 501(c)(3) charitable organizations or personal/individual causes. We've had easy access to 501(c)(3)s before, but CrowdRise will make it easier than ever to support small or local causes. Swimmers also have the option to create or join teams in support of a single cause.

** Seasonal memberships (Memorial Day through Labor Day) to the Kingsport Aquatic Center are available.

*** Swimmers who bring other swimmers to Swim for Them will be eligible for an extra $200 toward their charity! We'll do a classic punchbowl drawing at the pre-swim dinner.
