Its that time of year again! We are 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. Let’s set our goals high and go for a new team record this year! Over the next month, all swimmers are encouraged to collect donations from friends, family, neighbors, and anyone who you think is willing to help. Donors can choose to contribute a flat rate or donate an amount per lap. With Thanksgiving just around the corner, be thankful that you have had the opportunity to learn how to swim. Now it’s our chance to give back to the swimming community in thanks for all that it has given us!
Your team captains,
Megan Mathews and AJ Nybo
