BENEFITING: Trident Swim Foundation, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Nov 22, 2014
On Saturday, November 22nd, we will participate in The Great Relay, a 5,000 meter relay race, to benefit both The Trident Swim Foundation and Red Tide.
The Trident Swim Foundation is an inner-city swim team program that gives urban kids the chance to learn the rewards of competitive swimming and academic discipline. Trident, seeks to build superior community-based athletic and academic programs where student athletes can achieve their personal goals. Trident emphasizes individual and team growth, a thorough knowledge of swimming, the spirit of sportsmanship, a healthy lifestyle, and academic excellence. All activities are offered fee-free for participating students.
Red Tide is a US masters swim team. We are a community of athletes with a passion for the water. We swim for fun, fitness and competition, and pride ourselves on the many walks of life that comprise our membership – from novice swimmers to USMS national and world titleholders, as well as runners, cyclists and triathletes.
As swimmers we:
Wake up at ungodly hours during the weekend for practice and swim meets
Cheer from the bleachers for our teammates during meets
Encourage one another to be better, faster, and stronger
Support one another during wins and losses
Win local, national and world titles
We hope you will consider making a gift today. Any level of support is greatly appreciated – And who knows!?! Your donation could help to support the next Michael Phelps or Missy Franklin.
