Swim-a-thon to raise funds for Stingray Swim Club

Stingray Swim Club is holding its annual Swim-a-thon on the 3 November 2017 at the Lion’s Swimming Pool in George Town, Grand Cayman.

During this swim-a- thon, swimmers have two hours to swim a maximum of 200 lengths. Donors are encouraged to support our athletes by pledging to support their efforts – either via a flat donation, or by pledging a certain amount of money per length that the swimmer completes.

Swimming is one of the most intense sports, with training taking place year-round. The commitment and discipline that it takes to do well is incredible and it is “the norm” around the world for swimmers as young as 12 years old to train for 10 hours a week, plus dryland fitness. 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.

To encourage 100% participation in this fund-raising event – a number of great prizes have been organised – some for most money raised, some for first to finish, some for most number of pledges.

“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 program that covers the cost of memberships for reasons of social or economic hardship; and offsetting the costs of team travel to overseas meets,” said Club President Kathy Jackson.

“Please come out and join us and support these young athletes,” she urged.

Persons interested in sponsoring a swimmer should contact Coach Neil at 328-2452 or email stingrayswimcoach@gmail.com.
