Annual 5K Swim Fundraiser
Updated: Sep 19
The Spruce Creek Hawk Swimming Team's 13th annual 5K Charity Swim is right around the corner. While our goal is to develop and set traditions in a sportsmanlike manner in a competitive Florida High School Swimming program, we also look to support the community that has continued to support our team throughout the years. Just as we take pride in our community, we pride our academic achievements (Girls' unweighted GPA 3.737 4th statewide among large schools; Boys' 3.540 10th).
During the spring of this year, over half of our swimmers taught free swim lessons for area foster children. We have raised $1000 for the YMCA lessons for local needy children for many years because we believe it's essential everyone learns to swim and enjoy a sport we are all so passionate about. We need your help to continue as a swim team with these efforts.
Each year, the team holds a 5K Swim, which is 5000 yards, 200 laps in a 25-yard pool, roughly equivalent to running a half marathon! Our swimmers will swim the 5000 yards Saturday, September 25.
Our goal is to raise at least $1000 for this project, plus money for team expenses, which include $8000 pool rental, along with transportation costs, meet entry fees, and team equipment needs. If you can help us with a donation, we would greatly appreciate it. DONATE NOW
