Our annual swim-a-mile fundraising challenge will take place on Sat 28th April
8-10 am when PASC swimmers will be supporting local charity Angel Wishes, who support families affected by childhood cancer. All money raised will be divided equally between the Charity & PASC. Sponsorship forms are available at the club desk.
There will be draw made with 2 prizes available: 1) to the family who raises the most sponsorship and 2) to a swimmer taking part in the event. We encourage all large pool swimmers to take part in this worthy fundraiser.
PASC will be running their 3rd Try-a-Tri event on Sat 2nd June at Cascades. For those that attended the previous events, we will be running with a similar format – pool, bike and run. This event is ideal for everyone who can swim 2 lengths of the big pool. We’ll be starting at 8am and should be finished by 10am. More details will follow soon, but for now hold the date. Any questions ask either coaches Steve or Conor.
