Coast 2 Coast Swim Challenge

6/20/2014 1:58pm

440 MILES & OVER $10,000 RAISED

The Coast 2 Coast Swim Challenge is seeing the hard work all the swimmers did on June 1 by swimming 440 plus miles and raising over $10,000.  The money raised is being put to good use in Los Angeles County by providing FREE swim lessons to those who need the financial assistance.  Since June 1 we have handed out over 145 grants to children who want to learn to swim.  We are getting requests daily and have awarded over 72 children with lessons at the Culver City Plunge through two resources.  Our goal is to keep this program growing and we will continue to update everyone.  Thank you...

You may LOVE doing it. You may HATE doing it.

LA Tri Club Members and Friends:

You may LOVE doing it. You may HATE doing it.

But the ability to SWIM is a precious gift that someone once shared with you.

Now you can share this gift with disadvantaged and at-risk kids, for whom swimming skills can make a better and much safer life.

Last year, the Coast-to-Coast Swim Challenge raised enough money to provide 300 under-served kids in LA with FREE swim lessons. Members of LA TRI CLUB were there in strength as volunteers, organizers, and fund-raising swimmers. And this year on June 1st in Culver City we are determined to blow last year’s results out of the water! (We’re sorry…that water pun was just sitting there begging for it.)

This year, 100% of the funds raised by C2C swimmers will again provide FREE lessons to both disadvantaged kids and recipients from One With The Water - an organization that teaches disabled and/or critically ill children and adults how to swim.

It’s an amazing event - so amazing that the World Triathlon Corporation and Ironman Foundation have joined the C2C Swim Challenge cause this year. Notable coaches will also be on the pool deck to provide free pointers, and sponsors will be on-site with complimentary food and beverages.

No matter whether you love swimming laps, hate swimming laps, or just want to see a lot of gorgeous Los Angeles athletes in Speedos, your personal contribution is both valued and needed

Please visit coast2coastswim.com to find out more and register to participate.
