Abuela's Swim



April 21th


Dear TIBU families,

Abuela’s Swim:  A Swim for ALS:  The Hydro-sonic Tiburones Booster Club will host the 7th Abuela’s Swim on Saturday, April 21, 2018 at Montgomery College – Rockville to raise money for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” in honor of Coach Jorge’s mother, Rosa Mercedes Silva, who passed away in 2009.  Through the hard work of TIBU parents, coaches and swimmers, the team has raised over $62,000 to date!   

The event has two components, a swim and a silent auction.  Each swimmer raises pledges and then participates in Abuela’s Swim on April 21th at MC-Rockville.  During Abuela’s Swim, there is also a silent auction of baskets from the swim groups and of individual donations.  We also collect sponsors ahead of time (Gold, Silver and Bronze).  All proceeds will go to the Robert Packard Center for ALS Research and to assist a local family currently dealing with a loved one with ALS.
