Hi Team! (Team: Alex "Sharknado" Klugman)
It's that time of year again!
I am excited to announce that Alpine will be holding its annual Swim-A-Thon on December 15th and 16th. This year, Alpine will be donating all of its profits to the USA Swimming Foundation. The USA Swimming Foundation’s water safety campaign, Make a Splash, provides children with swim lessons and educates families about the importance of water safety. In a country where 10 people drown every day, the Make a Splash initiative’s aim to provide every child in America with the opportunity to learn how to swim is an important step forward but also a lofty goal that needs all of our help!
Each swimmer will swim for one hour straight, trying to complete as many laps as possible. Last year, our team swam over 148 miles together. We are setting our goals high and going for a new team record this year!
Donors can choose to contribute a flat rate or donate an amount per length. If you'd like to contribute a flat rate, you can do that now. If you want do donate an amount per length, I am going to try to swim 50 lengths. I think that this site only allows a fixed donation (e.g., a $.50/length donation = $25; $1.00/length = $50, ...), so I'll let you know if I swim less (or more!!).
