"Take Your Mark, Leave Your Mark" $3.0M Capital Campaign

- from Katy Arris-Wilson, President, TIDE Board of Directors

We have made remarkable progress on this campaign.  No other swim team in the country can say they’ve accomplished what we have, and this will be yet another milestone of which we can be proud.  We want our kids to compete in the pool with the best of the best and win!

Please click here to donate.

We embarked on this ambitious campaign to attain 100% TIDE family participation.  Why?  We want to show the community we support this project before we go out to solicit their support.  I am happy to report that we are at 62% participation, and we have raised close to $500K.  But we need to do more.  We need to get to 100%.  If you haven’t had time to make a donation, please take the time to support this effort!

 “Everyone must leave something behind when he dies, my grandfather said. A child or a book or a painting or a house or a wall built or a pair of shoes made. Or a garden planted. Something your hand touched some way so your soul has somewhere to go when you die, and when people look at that tree or that flower you planted, you're there.  It doesn't matter what you do, he said, so long as you change something from the way it was before you touched it into something that's like you after you take your hands away. “
― Ray BradburyFahrenheit 451

TIDE Swimming, this is our opportunity to Leave our Mark!
