EDGE Swim Club
Thirty-three EDGE Swimmers participated in a 1-hour swim-a-thon for the Big Change Round-Up on Saturday, January 27th. EDGE swimmers swam as many yards as they could within the 1-hour timeframe, in an effort to both show support and raise money for the UVM Children’s Hospital. EDGE swimmers received fixed pledges, or pledges per lap, as a means to raise money.
Our thirty-three swimmers totaled 103,850 yards! Our total donation amount from the swim team is now up to $2,356.99!
After making an impact on the community, our swimmers now look to make a big splash on the 2018 New England championship season. EDGE swimmers have a final tune-up this Sunday, February 4th, at St. Michael’s College, before the 2018 New England Regional championship from February 9th-11that the Upper Valley Aquatic Center in White River Junction, VT.
