Hi Family and Friends,
It is that time of year again when my swim team is holding its annual Swim-A-Thon. Swim-A-Thon is our biggest fundraiser of the year. We are looking to replace and add to our training equipment!
I have been a swimmer for 12 years and I often get asked how can you swim back and forth, endlessly in a pool staring a the black line at the bottom of the pool? Truth is, I really don't have a great answer.
What I can tell you is that I am learning life skills and having fun while swimming. Swimming has been a great activity for me, in gaining great friendships, a strong healthy body and learning discipline. I am VERY proud of my accomplishments! In the end, I know that swimming is making me a better person. More capable. More confident. More everything. I can't imagine not swimming for my team. I have great team mates and love training and racing with them!
All 200+ of my swim team mates will swim for 2 hours or 200 laps which ever comes first! All funds are used for our club to help improve each individual swimmer achieve their individual as well as team goals. We have been able to train and send swimmers to local, state, regional and national level meets! Most of our graduating senior swimmers extend their careers in college. Olympic trials are coming, watch for Hillsboro HEAT swim caps!
Donating is really simple. Just click the green "Please Donate" button above my picture and fill-in the information. Any amount is greatly appreciated. Pledges may be a flat donation or amount per lap. All donations are tax deductible too! Thank you for supporting me!
