Description

The Breakers Swim-4-Funz$ DECEMBER 17th 2019

 

What is Swim-4-Funz$… it’s a fun, energetic evening of just swimming to raise funds to support the Breakers team.  Proceeds of the event for this annually goes toward purchasing FINS/BUOYS/BOARDS and all expenses for the end-of-season party (facility and awards).

Our primary goal for 2019-2020 is to adapt our starting blocks with rails and wedges that are used at the competition pools that we travel to throughout the year. Each one is $1500, so we will do our best and try to fill at least ½ our blocks this year.

The Details: Breakers swimmers get pledges from friends, family and businesses either “per length” or as a flat donation.  Then, on December 17th, Breakers team members swim, swim, SWIM!
