Long Island Swimming Pool Swim
Sunday June 5th - Saturday June 11th at your regularly scheduled class or practice
JOIN OUR SWIM The week of June 5 – 11, 2016 will be LIAC's Swim Across America week. Swimmers who participate will dedicate a lesson, practice, set, or the entire week, towards the fight against cancer. This year we are bringing back our special incentive… the swim off! The Swim School, Stroke Clinic, and LIAC will each fundraise as separate teams. The team who raises the most money will all be invited to the pool party! Last year the LIAC coaches even got involved… swimming laps for every participant in their group… maybe this year we will get the lesson instructors to do the same!
This is really about doing something for a fantastic cause, but we do want to recognize your hard work and commitment to fundraising. Swimmers who raise the minimum of $100 will receive a t-shirt and cap, those who raise $200 will be invited to a pool party on June 11th, and those who raise $500 or more will receive a towel.
Long Island Swimming has been involved with Swim Across America since 2001 and has raised over $200,000 to fight cancer in that time. With the addition of the Syosset Swim School and Stroke Clinics, this year, there are over 2,000 members of the Long Island Swimming family. We’re setting our goal at $30,000 for 2016. Just think about it… All it takes is each of us raising just $15.00 to meet our goal!
