It’s swim week! And what a week it will be!! On Saturday, each and all of our intrepid Team Hydro members will leap from the ferry into the bay to swim for hydrocephalus!! We are so grateful for the willingness of each of you to swim on behalf of all those seeking to live with this life-threatening condition!
So here’s a few reminders for Race Day!
Pick up your special Team Hydro Cap and bracelet! After you check-in at the maritime museum in aquatic park, look for Sam outside the building, or head to the Team Hydro table–he’ll/we’ll give you your special cap, as well as the story of and a bracelet bearing the name of a person with hydrocephalus in whose honor you can swim. Some of our swimmers have said reading the story of a real person who has overcome such great challenges gave them the inspiration they needed to complete the swim when going got tough in the bay!
Gather with Team Hydro at the Team Hydro table prior to the race Announcements–we’ll psych each other up, listen to the announcements, give you some extra pointers, and walk together to the ferries!
Remember to take the team Hydro Ferry which will be the one on the left when facing Alcatraz! We’ll cheer each other on during the ride– and make sure all feel comfortable and ready to leap into the bay for a GREAT and IMPORTANT cause!
Following the Race, don’t forget to head back to the Team Hydro table for hot chocolate, fruit, power bars, and friendship! Be ready to be congratulated by teammates, and on-land supporters while you recount YOUR escape from Alcatraz!
By now you should have received the race information email from the Sharkfest folks. Be sure to read it.
If you have ANY questions regarding the swim, do not hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Having swum the race a number of times, we’d be more than happy to answer any questions or give advice!
Mostly, thanks so much for swimming with Team Hydro! If you haven’t done so already, it is not too late to set up a fundraising page and collect some money to support hydrocephalus research! CLICK HERE
See you bright and early on Saturday!
