We are swimming to raise money for The Splash Foundation. Splash is a nonprofit charity giving free swimming lessons for foreign domestic workers and underprivileged youth.
Since its first class of 30 swimmers at Hong Kong International School in 2015, Splash has grown into a bonafide swim program serving some of Hong Kong’s most important, but under-served communities: foreign domestic workers, unprivileged youth, and refugee/migrant families. Now located in multiple pool sites on Hong Kong Island, Kowloon, and the New Territories, Splash provides free swim lessons to not only brand-new beginner swimmers, but to graduates of our beginner program whom are keen to become lifelong fitness – and even competitive – swimmers.
The Splash Dash Relay concept became a reality in 2017, when 33 of our graduates stepped up to compete in their first-ever swimming pool competition. Many of them had just learned to dive weeks before the relay event, but all successfully competed with their teams. They brought a new level of enthusiasm, energy, and excitement that MADE the inaugural Splash Dash Relay such an amazing event for the other swimmers, volunteers, and spectators. Their success – not just as competent swimmers, but as thoughtful leaders and advocates for their communities – is one of Splash’s greatest achievements and is a true testament to Splash’s impact in Hong Kong.
These Splash Dash Relay veterans continue to dedicate the majority of their free time back to Splash as trainee coaches, pool-site admin teams, and event organizers. Along with the rest of our volunteer coaches, Splash truly could not operate without their help.
The race entry fees for these 6 teams has already been raised (HK$30,000), but these swimmers will be pushing to raise more money for Splash among their friends, colleagues, and families. Whether it is HK$20 or $100, every bit counts towards being able to provide ONE more Splasher the opportunity to be a confident, strong, and successful role model both in and out of the water.
Calling all current Splashers, Splash Graduates, future Splashers, Splash Coaches, and Splash supporters! PLEASE SUPPORT OUR #TeamSplash RELAY TEAMS. They represent everything we hope each new Splasher will get a chance to become.
