With only 2 days left to our annual SWIM-A-THON, we are already at 93.95% towards our goal...our swimmers have raised an amazing $9, 395! In addition to our fundraising goal, many #HAC swimmers have set personal lap goals. While many NOVICE swimmers may set first time goals of 50-100 laps, more experienced and advanced swimmers have goals of 100-200 laps or more...all before most kids have woken up for the day. The fun starts at 7 am on Saturday, March 25th with a breakfast to follow. We will be able to update some of our meet equipment and help enhance the community pools that we use with the funds raised. Thank you to all those who have registered so far and to those swimmers who have already collected record breaking donations. You can see our awesome top fundraisers so far - such amazing efforts!
