California Girl Donates Proceeds from Swim-a-thon

There are many ways to support Reef Check: diving, donating, or even hosting a swim-a-thon! Michelle Engler of Lompoc, California, hosted just such an event on May 17th at her local high school pool. She created a variety of events including a relay, a bellyflop contest, a treasure hunt, and a “capture the watermelon” contest. A snack bar featuring baked goods and fresh fruit kept all the participants race-ready, and helped bring in some more funds! Forty people participated in this creative fundraiser, and $130 was raised and donated to Reef Check. Thanks to Michelle and all her friends for their support!
