SMAC Aquatics Updates 5-4-17

Thank you to all of you for such a TEAM effort for Swim Across America!  Everyone chipped in and did what was needed to make it a very special event.  We have raised $83,461 so far.  We are not done yet!  We are still accepting donations

Special thank you to:

Tom – Our top Aquatics fundraiser $1,200, Team Captain of the SMM which raised $6,670 & the best emcee anyone could ask for!

Kacee – Worked the challenging “Registration Desk”, raised $750, shared with us great ideas for 2018 and is going to San Diego in 2 weeks to help run their Swim Across America event!

Cindy – This is the 5th year in a row she captained Team Mavericks. Cindy brought over a team of swimmers, raised over $5,515 as a team and swam with her kids.  Amazing!

Jim – As captain of the Bulldog Swim Club Team Jim gets big kudos encouraging his swimmers to raise $2,815. Jim also swam alongside his athletes in at least 2 races and took the yoga class with many of his athletes.

Jack & Leon  – Did a great job setting up on Saturday night so we were good to go on Sunday morning.
