(CNS Local Life): Stingray Swim Club (SSC) will be holding its annual swim-a-thon 3 November 2017 at the Lions Pool in George Town. Participants will have two hours to swim a maximum of 200 lengths, with donors encouraged to support their efforts by either a flat donation or by pledging a certain amount of money per length completed.
Stingray’s swimmers will be putting in the hours to raise funds for their club and they are hopeful that the community will once again support them, stated an SSC press release.
To encourage participation in this fundraising event, organisers have arranged for a number of prizes – for most money raised, first to finish and most number of pledges.
SSC president Kathy Jackson explained the importance of the event for the club. “Funds raised in the swim-a-thon will go towards funding a number of important things for the club in the coming year with the primary focus being on the club’s discretionary membership programme that covers the cost of memberships for reasons of social or economic hardship; and offsetting the costs of team travel to overseas meets,” she said, adding, “Please come out and join us and support these young athletes.”
