BENEFITING: SAN DIEGO JUNIOR LIFEGUARD FOUNDATION
EVENT: Swim 24 Challenge 2017
EVENT DATE: Aug 26, 2017
DAYS TO GO: 4
Dear friends, Did you know that drowning is the second leading cause of accidental death among children and the leading cause of death for minority children and toddlers? There is something we can do about it! I’m participating in a local fundraising event called the Swim 24Challenge. I have joined a team of swimmers who, together, will swim non-stop for 24 hours in a competition with other teams to raise money to support drowning prevention. Each swimmer must raise a minimum of $100. The average cost to teach a child to swim is $100, so each member of a team will raise enough money to save at least one life. Funds raised at the Swim 24Challenge will go toward drowning prevention and aquatic safety activities through the San Diego Junior Lifeguard Foundation’s Waterproofing America Initiative. Please join me in supporting this life-saving cause by making a pledge in my name (link to personal fundraising page) or go to http://swim24.org to learn more, volunteer, join my team, or start one of your own. Sharing this message with friends, family, and coworkers also helps create awareness and increase support. If you would like to attend the event, my team will be competing at The UCSD Canyonview Aquatic Center in La Jolla on Saturday, Aug. 26th & Aug. 27th. Please call or email me (email@example.com) with questions. Wish me luck!
I also offer at least one free swim lesson to anyone to donates to my page! I am a former Ironman finisher (2.4miles), 10K swim races and events and a former lifeguard and swim instructor because I love helping everyone enjoy the water!
