Swimming for Schools

The big news currently is that we are soon to have a big event called "Swimming for Schools." This is a fundraiser and educational project involving Washington Gifted Academy, where I have been the swim team coach the last couple of years (All City Champions 2009!). Members of the swim team will participate in a "Swim-a-thon" on Saturday, May 30, collecting pledges and donations for their swimming. Plus, kids from the whole school are being encouraged to bring in money for Swimming for Schools. The lower grades have been matched with certain swimmers to raise money for them, and the 6th, 7th and 8th grades are squared off against each other to see who can raise the most money. Who will it be???

To contribute to the Swimming for Schools project (and, yes, all the money goes to build the school in Angola!) just go to and click on the "donate" link. Thanks!
