We have had a nice start to the Lap-A-Thon effort by a few key swimmers and their supporters. The Grand Prize winner for this years event is Jackson G. who was working all the bases. His efforts included linking a matching gift program at his fathers work. Calls to relatives and other networking to raise the top amount for his effort in the pool for SOLO! Just touched out at the finish line was Drew N. who held the top spot for about one minute. Drew came up with a great extra push at the end to take the second place position with all his actions. And it was also a great thing as we had a three way tie for third with Kaelyn S., Lulu S. and Nathalie B. who will split the lessons and prize pool! In addition Lara, Adrian and Elena K. as well as Paige K. & Alexandra W. all will receive awards for making the honorable mention level in the event. Please remember that all contibutions are still very much needed in working to support the swimmers this season. In most cases the are able to be used for tax purposes. Thanks to the 31 swimmers who have already turned in pledges! Go SOLO!
