The Story

My teammates and I were sad when we heard about all the hurricanes and earthquakes. We are so lucky where we are in beautiful California with our great PASA swim team, so we wanted to try to raise money for the people whose swim club was damaged in the storms.  Hopefully this will help them to get back to feeling strong and healthy again in their pool.

Our goal is to raise $5000 by asking people to sponsor us in swimming 500 meters at our own PASA-DKS team pool.

On Sunday, October 15, PASA-DKS Head Coach Dana Kirk organized several PASA-DKS families in heats of 500m races, finishing with a full group relay. Participants were sponsored for the swim to raise money for a swim team in Ponce, Puerto Rico, who are still without drinking water and electricity.  100% of the funds we raise go to this team. With your support coming to us from all over America, we exceeded our original goal and it is still climbing. Please share this site so we can help Nadadores Ponce Leones get healthy and swimming again. Thank yo to all participants and supporters!

PASA-DKS's amazing Head Coach, Dana Kirk, has contacted fellow Olympian Jesse Vassallo (1984) who directed us to our fundraiser's beneficiary - his hometown swim team in Ponce, Puerto Rico, which bears his father's name, and where both Jesse and his older brother coached. 

We have reached our original goal of $1000 in just these few days! With your generosity and goodwill, we are setting the goal at $2000.
