Watauga Swim Team 5K/Fun Run Benefit

Did you know that Watauga County has a Swim Team with over 50 members? Over the years, I have known many kids who’ve participated in the Watauga County Swim Team, and it is wonderful for their fitness, as well as achievement and self esteem.

The Mom Squad would like to share a message from the Swim Team about their upcoming fundraiser, and why they even need a fundraiser!  (and you guys know it is my dream to have a decent indoor/outdoor pool facility for our community!)


We would like to invite you to participate in Watauga Swim Team’s 1st Annual 5K/Fun Run Benefit!

Date: Saturday, May 1, 2010Watauga Swim Team 5k
Time: 8am registration, 9am race begins
Place: Greenway Trail
Cost: $20 preregistration, $25 race day (Registration forms can be found on our website. Payment and registration cost can be mailed to WST – P.O. Box 2506 in Boone, NC 28607)
Event: We will have a 5K (3.167 miles) race (all ages and walkers welcome) and a 1-mile fun run for our younger runners.

We have some AMAZING gifts for all participants and LOTS of door prizes as well! There will be great prizes for our age category winners from the generosity of our local businesses!

Come and support our county swim team. The funds we raise will be used to encourage children from Watauga County to learn and compete in the fun sport of swimming while learning self-discipline, sportsmanship, strength and commitment. Teaching children to swim is a life-long sport and a life-saving skill. Currently, we have over 50 members.

All proceeds go to the Watauga Swim Team.

Your registration for this event goes further than just the event itself though. It serves to support our team for its ongoing operating expenses.

Swin Team Fun Run 5kWatauga Swim Team is a non-profit organization that relies on its member dues and fundraisers to support our coaches’ salaries, facility fees and equipment costs.

Most swim teams are supported by facilities that are capable of hosting swim meets in their home areas. These meets serve as large revenue sources for those teams.

At the current time, Watauga County does not have the facility for us to host our own swim meets.

SO, we need you to come out and run with us!

Run on down and support your Watauga County Swim Team on May 1, 2010 at Greenway Trail!
