Aloha Pau Hana swimmers and
Guess what…Did you know that 50 years
ago Pau Hana was founded in 1968!!
And Did you know we have Pau Hana alum coaching, alum with swimmers
on the team, and many who still volunteer and support our team. How
special is that! (Super
cool and totally awesome factoid from JO’s in March..the
oldest Ohio LSC record broken at the meet was from a former Pau
Hana 1650 swimmer. Her name is Karen DiBlasio. Her 41 year old
record was from 1977 and her mile time was 16:33.31!!) And at one
time she was ranked 7th in the WORLD!
hope you are proud to be a part of this program and take the time
to learn the history from years past. You are the the future of the
team and also will be a part of the history in the years to
have some very exciting news for this summer. We will be teaming up
with Pelotonia for our 4th Annual Jill Griesse Memorial Invite.
From our donations we generate from the meet 100% will benefit ALL
CANCER research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer
Center- James Cancer Hospital and Solve Research
past 3 Jill Griesse Memorial Invites have raised more than $17,000.
This year Pau Hana Swim Team has a Peloton registered with
Pelotonia. (I am riding and encourage as many of you to sign up to
RIDE, Volunteer, or be a Virtual rider). The goal this year is to
surpass what we did in the past 3 years…
More info will be coming soon on this event…
that being said I cannot stress how important it is to have
ALL of our parents
volunteering and helping out at our 2 Team hosted events.
(Jill Griesse Memorial will be June 15-17 and the Sr Meet on July
12-15th so mark your calendars) It takes an army to run these HUGE events and
we have the reputation of running a great one.. Kudos to
hosting these meets we also are able to offset operating costs for
the team as well as donating and being a part of ENDING
So, by signing up and being a part of the Pau Hana Swim Team I am
asking you to contribute and volunteer your time and make this
experience a very positive and memorable one for your
children. I have chosen at
this time not to make this a MANDATORY commitment (with a Fee
attached if you do not participate) because I believe in the
goodness and willingness of each of you to WANT to do your
make a difference. Please continue to step up for your Pau Hana
OHANA…Your support and love is much appreciated. So now
let’s make more amazing memories…..
