Did you know that 50% of the population does not know how to swim?
As the River City we think every neighbor should be able to enjoy our natural and built environment. We envision an RVA where every child grows up with the skills to stay fit through aquatics. All money raised by the Swim for RVA event will be used to fund learn-to-swim programs. Our goal is to inspire programming in all 120 elementary schools in our region. Together we will teach every second grade child to swim in our River City!
Event Format: ONLY 22 TEAMS in this inaugural event!
Our competition pool has 22 SCY lanes and each team will have its own assigned lane and facility space.
Form a team from 1 - 12 persons to compete in one of these events:
1. 24-HOUR Relay Swim Saturday 9 AM - Sunday 9 PM
2. 24 Miles in 24 Hours - FOR ONE OR TWO PERSON TEAMS
3. 12-HOUR Relay Swim Saturday 9 AM - 9PM
Registration: Elect a Captain! Your captain will register your team at www.swimrichmond.org. Each captain should download the Captain's Manual and be responsible for delivering information to each team member.
Entry Fee/ Fundraising: All teams will be responsible for a minimum donation of $1200. SwimRVA staff will provide each team with a Crowdrise account, instructions and support. Each Captain will reserve the team spot with a credit card and $50 starter donation.
