Turkey Swim returns Thanksgiving Day

Submitted By Nicole Roa

The start of November means fall is in the air; Thanksgiving is just around the corner. It is also time to swim for the Karen Gordin Scholarship Fund. Every Thanksgiving Day, the Hayward Plunge Staff sets aside this day to raise money for the Karen Gordin Scholarship Fund. Karen was a lifeguard who was killed tragically in a car crash ten years ago on November 27, 2001. She was very much loved at the Plunge; and we, as a staff, want to carry on her name and values.

This fundraiser allows us to offer free swim lessons to low income families and annually awards scholarships to two college students who are current lifeguards and working toward their career goals.

This year's scholarship recipients will be presented at 9:30 a.m. Please come and be a part of the tradition and join us for a swim. We ask for a minimum of $4 donation. All donations are tax deductible. These scholarships are completely funded by donations.

Checks can be made out to: The Karen M. Gordin Scholarship Fund
