Carr Fire Impacts Redding Swim Club - from Coach Stu
Dear DAM members - this past weekend I was contacted by my long-time friend and associate, Mark Wagner from the Redding Aquaducks Swim Club. He reached out because their community and his swim club have all been greatly affected by the month-long Carr fire. Most notably they had to cancel their two biggest fundraisers of the year (including the Whiskeytown OW event) while also losing numerous club items that were destroyed, charred or stolen during the evacuation.
He and his club have set up a gofundme page that details their predicament and asks for community donations. The DAM Board of Directors is looking to make their club this year's beneficiaries of our annual Community Outreach donation. Please consider helping our fellow swimmers from the north state with a contribution of your own. They are all in need of extra help.
Here is the link with further details.
