VMHS Swimming and Diving team will host its 5th annual swim raiser! The team will swim for one hour in exchange for monetary donations.
All of the proceeds will benefit Colin's Hope.
Our event will be held from 4 - 6 p.m., Tuesday May 25, 2021 at the CC Natatorium, 3202 Cabaniss. (Swimming will start at 4:30 p.m.)
The Eagles host this event every year to stress to everyone how important it is to watch children around all kinds of water- swimming pools, bathtubs, beaches, and even buckets to prevent them from drowning.
Did you know that drowning is the No. 1 cause of accidental death for children under 5 and a leading cause for ages 1-15?
Last year, Texas lost 81 children to fatal drowning, while an estimated 5-7x as many children survived a non-fatal drowning.
This year, Texas has already lost at least 16 children to fatal PREVENTABLE drowning.
The team will swim laps and will distribute water safety education materials to parents and caregivers.
They will also read the book Colin & Friends WAIT FOR A GROWNUP to younger children to teach them how to be safer around water.
We will swim the laps. We ask you to support us with a donation.
Please donate and help us raise money that will save lives. Each and every dollar counts.
Our goal is to raise at least $3,000.
Each swimmer is encouraged to raise $100. There will be a Top Pledgeraiser prize and a prize for the swimmer who gathers the most donations.
(Deadline for award is noon on event day.)
To get the word out for our cause, please share the Colin's Hope page on Facebook and share this link with your family and friends to make a donation. Thank you very much!
Make every day the BEST DAY EVER!
