Raising money to Provide a Haitian Community with Clean Water!
We are bringing back several of the fun events from last year and incorporate a few new ones as well. :) This year, we continue our goal to bring a clean water system to a needy Haitian community. Healing Waters International has one system on the ground and a couple more in the works. To provide their clean water systems, one organization they are partnering with is Chances for Children, a non profit organization which provides support for orphanages in Haiti. Last years event raised $1085 and together, we have raised $2210. Healing Waters estimates that it costs roughly $10,000 to install a sustainable clean water system in a needy Haitian community. There is no requirement to donate to be part of this event but we hope you do. Immersed in our decadent culture, it’s hard to understand what people go through in other parts of the world. The problems are real and I hope you guys can be a part of the solution!
Welcome the H.O.P.E. Showdown Meet website
We are holding our 3rd annual fundraising swim meet to Help Other People Everywhere on May 12th from 3-5pm at the Shoreline Pool. Entry information is available above..
Have you ever dreamed about swimming at a meet with fins and paddles?
Kickers, have you ever wanted a race event where everybody had to kick with a board?
You people who can't kick to save your lives, have you ever just wished there could be an event where everybody had to use a pull-buoy?
You crazy breed of underwater dolphin kickers, do you ever wish you could just race one length underwater? Or how about a 50 underwater with fins?
Well, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, we have everything you WISH were events at swim meets at the H.O.P.E. Showdown!
At our annual H.O.P.E. showdown, we are committed to H.elping O.ther P.eople E.verywhere. It is a way to have fun, come together, and help those in need.
This year, all proceeds will go toward providing a sustainable water system to a needy community in Haiti. While we take it for granted, clean water is a scarce resource in other parts of the world. Healing Waters International is one of several organizations attempting to battle the water crisis that leaves many Hatians dying of thirst. Together we CAN make a difference, and have a lot of fun doing so. :)
