Sunday, February 21 was our annual Emerald Aquatics lap-a-thon. Last year I decided to swim and raise money for the team I coach. I did it again this year. Money raised goes to keep dues reasonable but, more importantly to me, it funds our scholarship program. We've never had to turn a kid away that couldn't afford to pay.
Swimming definitely brings out the best in me – the joyful and playful side. 🙂
I ended up beating my goal of 100 laps and swam 120 laps (3000 meters) in 1 hour. I had two per lap sponsors which I'm sure motivated me to swim more than I would have otherwise! All of my other sponsors were a flat rate. Thank YOU to each and every one of my sponsors! Here's Lottie – one of my high schoolers – who volunteered to be my counter. Thank you, Lottie!
It's not too late!! You can still donate to this wonderful organization at: www.emeraldaquatics.org. Your donation is tax deductible since EA is a 501c3. Click on donate, and you can even pick me as who you sponsor. My personal goal is to raise $2000. Currently I have raised $1300. We can still get donors through March 31, 2016.
Thank you for your sponsorship! We are Grateful!
