PCST Swim-A-Thon – Great Job Swimmers and Volunteers – One More Week to get Pledges!
We had a wonderful time at the 2018 PCST Swim-A-Thon.  The swimmers did a fantastic job and swam an incredible number of laps.  Thanks go to our volunteers who helped with getting the kids fed and made the event so much fun!  With what we have already collected and what has been pledged and set to collect this week, it appears that we have a great chance of surpassing our goal!  Remember that you can still raise money for the Swim-A-Thon through this Saturday April 21.  Congratulations to the 79 swimmers who have already raised money but that leaves a lot of you who can still help PCST!  A complete list of all fundraisers will be posted to the website next Monday.
