February 28 Update - 10AM

Good morning everyone!

Swim-A-Thon is just around the corner, here is the final info:

DATE & TIME & LOCATION
Saturday February 29
7-9:30 AM at TPASC

** We ask Elite, Junior Elite and Senior swimmers to be on deck at 6:30AM if possible, as they will be lane leaders and I'd like to give explanations, and maybe allow them to bank a few KMs before the start.
** For all swimmers not having an access card to TPASC, please meet at 6:45AM with your coach in the lobby and you will all go through the gates at the same time

 

RESULTS SO FAR
We got some good results so far (over 85% of our goal reached). You can still raise funds until Monday.
Last chance to send an email to your friends / family for some support!

We have a target of swimming a total of 500KM altogether. 

 

PRIZES
Most of the prizes will be given in the leadership room (we have a direct pool access) during and after the swim-a-thon.
Everything should be finished at around 9:30AM.
