Marathon participants are seniors who are members of the Water Wizards* and who will swim as many laps as they can within a two hour period. By the end of the event, an official will provide documentation that accurately accounts for the number of laps each swimmer swam. The swim can be done prior to March 25 in any pool as long as the number of laps are counted and signed off by an official, such as a lifeguard.
Support a senior swimmer by pledging $1.00 per lap. If you pledge $1.00 per lap and the swimmer completes 10 laps, your total donation will be $10.00. A mile is 36 laps. Contact Water Wizards member, Dinah Griggsby @ 202.340.1350, for pledges or for additional information. Funds collected will be used to further the outreach efforts of the Water Wizards* and support its members at local and national competitive swim events.
Congratulations Water Wizards,
We had a successful effort for the Water Wizards and those participating in the Senior Swim Marathon. All swimmers far exceeded what they thought they could swim. Whether you swam before Saturday or the day of the event, we all were successful.
As this was our first Senior Swim Marathon we can be proud that we had few snags. The enthusiasm, encouragement, and pure joy we exhibited towards each other's efforts were beautiful expressions of support.
I want to thank you for your support of the Water Wizards and I thank you personally for your support of me. I had fun and I think everyone enjoyed the event.
See you on Wednesday, April 12 at Takoma Aquatic Center at 11:30 am. Hopefully, at that time I will be able to give a full report on the marathon, and we will also have an opportunity to discuss what went well and what we need to improve for our next marathon.
· All completed certificates should be given to Rodger or me.
· All monies should be given to or mailed to Sonja Williams.
