24 HOUR SWIM...From Saturday morning at 9:00 a.m. to Sunday morning at 9:00 a.m. I will be swimming 24 miles (in the pool this time). 24 miles in 24 hours to raise money to help teach people to swim! At the top of every hour - I will swim a mile. Then, hop out of the pool, rest until the top of the next hour...and repeat. Essentially - wash, rinse and repeat...24 times. My fundraising goal - $1200.
Did you know that 50% of the population does not know how to swim?
As the River City SwimRVA wants every neighbor to be able enjoy our natural and built H2O environment. We envision an RVA where every child grows up with the skills to stay fit through aquatics. All money raised by the Swim for RVA event will be used to fund learn-to-swim programs. The goal is to inspire programming in all 120 elementary schools in our region. Together we will teach every second grade child to swim in our River City!
