On July 14th, Kanawha is hosting the RVA Splash & Dash Series, and we want to invite everyone to participate! The RVA Splash and Dash Series is a 4-race swim-run series between local swim teams. Each race includes a 100 m swim swim followed by a 1 mi run. Participants compete in each race to win series and team awards plus raise money for our team and the Cameron K Gallagher Foundation. Check out the flyer on the bulletin board by the snack bar and the banner on the main walkway for more information.
Last week, a coach from Endorphin Fitness came to swim team practice to work with the swimmers on transitioning from swimming to running and getting them excited about participating in the Splash & Dash. Children do not have to be on the swim team to enter this event. All children who can swim 100 meters and run a mile are invited to enter. This event is essentially 2/3 of a triathlon, since there will not be a bike leg, so if your child is looking for a different kind of challenge, this will be fun.
Volunteers are also needed to direct traffic, give out water, and make sure everyone is safe. Older teenagers who want to earn school service hours and adults are encouraged to sign up to volunteer. You may use this link to register as a volunteer: https://goo.gl/forms/IsqXX4Xz2LRF4fgq2.
We hope to have lots of Kanawha's young athletes participating on July 14.
