Woohoo! 60 Adults Learn to Swim
Thanks to These Fun Volunteers!
Greenville Splash Volunteers Abound
Greenville Splash is fulfilling our mission of extending our passion for swimming all over the Upstate! We have successfully taught 60 swimmers to swim in our adult learn to swim program. Please take a moment to watch our video that captures the compassion and enthusiasm of our swimmers and volunteers! We had a family that is now complete after the mom took lessons from us and now she is able to go on vacation and swim with her kids. We had a breast cancer survivor that was able to learn enough to be able to go out and complete a workout of 750 yards. We had one swimmer that already was able to rescue someone that needed help swimming on a rafting trip. Our lessons have inspired so many. We are also in the season for getting ready for our Upstate Splash Charity Swim. So far our funds have been used to teach 1,100 children to swim. And if that's not enough we had 10 volunteer kayakers that helped out at our first group open water swim of the season. There really is nothing better than giving back to our community and spreading the joy of our wonderful sport. Our sixteen volunteers for ALTS were: Leah Aragon, Barbara Barber, Amy Browning, Allan Byer, David Hall, Doug Long, Mark Kothe, Carolyn Moore, Casey Oliver, Melissa Patterson, Judi Rich, Leslie Scott, Allyson Seitzer, Tyler Sites, Claire Walker, and Kim Williams.

We had so many Greenville Splash athletes that were planning to participate but this local event had to be cancelled due to weather. We still want to acknowledge all of our swimmers that trained so hard for many months! That training will pay off in future events.
