Calling all swimmers......

We are organizing a 5th "Swim for Polio" at Shortt's Lake on Sunday, August 19th at  9:30 am.

It is hard to believe, but in the 4 years that we have been doing the Swim for Polio, we have contributed over $15,000 to the cause.  Specifically, in 2016, we raised $1400.  When matched 2-1 by the  Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation this becomes $4200!   2015 we raised $3000.  When matched with Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation this amounted to $9000!  2014 we raised $825 became $2475.  All this equals $15,675. 

This year, swimmers can join the group on Sunday, August 19th 2018 at 9:30 am so they can do their swim.

On Aug 19th, Richard Bowness will take swimmers across the lake and accompany them back. (Meet at Bowness' a little before 9:30 am). You can be on the boat as a spotter if you are not swimming.
