BENEFITING: Save the Children

EVENT DATE: Nov 27, 2013

THE STORY:

On Wednesday, November 27, the Water Rat Swim Team will gather together at the Westport Weston Family Y for Swim for the Philippines, a five-hour event to raise money for Save the Children’s Typhoon Haiyan relief fund. Swimmers who are 8 and under will swim as many laps as they can in 30 minutes. Swimmers who are 9 and over will push themselves to see how many laps they can swim in 60 minutes. (Click for details.)

Last year, this test of skill would not have been possible. In November 2012, the Water Rats had no place to practice and no place to host swim meets. The Family Y was closed because of Superstorm Sandy. We didn’t know if the building would ever reopen. But the property damage, inconvenience and uncertainty that we experienced in 2012 pales in comparison to the death, destruction and despair caused by Super Typhoon Haiyan. According to Philippine authorities, more than 11 million people have been affected by the typhoon.

This Thanksgiving we want to do more than feel fortunate; we want to help the millions of children who are at risk in the Philippines. That is why we are asking all Water Rats to spend the week before Thanksgiving asking family and friends to donate to Save the Children, one of the world’s leading independent organizations for children – which happens to be based in Westport.
