ATHLETES SUPPORTING ATHLETES
Dear Neptune Athletes and Families,
We are truly thankful and blessed to have the support of Neptune Swimming!!! Malaga o Toa Foundation sounds like “Malanga o Toa” and means Journey of the Warrior. Our vision is developing athletes for life through the commitment to excellence in athletic development, education, and servant leadership in American Samoa.
One reason we have a special interest is due to the island having a drowning rate 7 times higher than anywhere in the continental U.S. Just recently they opened the first and only public pool on the island. We want to be part of the development and ongoing program of swimming in American Samoa! We are currently supporting football and Olympic Weightlifting in American Samoa.
The 2018 Sonoma County Human Race is on April 28; 8a. This annual event is the largest fundraising opportunity for non-profit organizations. We are reaching out to our Neptune Swimmers and Families to help support us in our vision…we need your help.
Our fundraising needs include: athlete support, equipment costs, travel expenses, and operational costs.
Our volunteer needs include: race participants, fundraising, and volunteer leaders.
Please e-mail us your interest. We will reach out to you soon regarding further information.
Thank you and Go Neptunes!
Cassandra Lund, President
Malaga o Toa Foundation
