Upstate Splash Charity Open Water Swim

Big picture

Thank you Greenville Splash for hosting an amazing event!

The 5th anniversary of the Upstate Splash Charity Open Water Event was a huge success! We had the most beautiful day and perfect conditions.

We are excited to announce that our efforts over the past four years have been able to provide swim lessons to 2,363 children to swim. These children probably would not have learned to swim or be safe around water without our help. It really feels good to be a part of something that brings swimmers together to save children's lives!

The following swimmers did a fantastic job swimming either the 1.2 or 2.4 mile swim: Jane Arrington, Sara Bopp, Rolando Chacon, John and Deidre Decker, Jennifer Gault, Jessica Harwood, Chongsuk Hazzard, Stephanie Heatley, Michelle Jones, Christy Keyes, Kristin Knowles, Molly Marett, Bob McKee, Jacob Pocta, Cheryl Quinn, Andrew Row, Jordan Rumsey, Monte St. Amant, Brenda Stephens, Adam Tepe, John VanSant, Fran Villa, Hayes Walsh, and Jamie Whitlock.

We could not do this event without so many of our Greenville Splash swimmers that worked this event as volunteers! We have the best volunteers an organization could ever ask for. Thank you for supporting our event by giving your time and expertise to make our event safe and fun. Our amazing volunteers: Brett Baker, Steve Barbian, Allan Byer, Sara Bopp, Amy Browning, Kelly and Jason Cassandra, James Clinkscales, John Davidson, Tedd Garner, Lea Hall, Charles Hazzard, Bailey Kendrick, Mark Kothe, Amy and Connor LaRosa, Vonda Lawson, Carolyn Moore, Nancy Newlin, Kristi Panayotoff, Cheryl Quinn, Mary, Morgan and Malaki Roldan, Patrice Shearin, David and Julie Smith, Brenda Stephens, Steve and Leslie Scott

Make a Difference

Thank you so much to all of our swimmers that volunteer for Greenville Splash! Your efforts help to make our community safer in the water and provide fitness and competition activities for swimmers. We hosted the Dixie Zone LCM Championships where swimmers came to compete all from all over the southeast. We have taught over 215 adults how to swim! It's a great feeling of giving back to our fellow swimmers around the country.
