Dear Gauteng Swimming Community and Supporters,
Covid-19 has changed our world forever and the world of Swimming has experienced a devastating blow which will see the future of swimmers hang in the balance. From development level to Olympic level the effects of the pandemic have been catastrophic. It has not only affected our swimmers. Our coaches and swim instructors are crippled by the financial implications this has had on all of them.
Our swimming coaches and instructors have experienced a complete loss of income in the days and months passed and the future remains uncertain as the lock down regulations continue to cast a dark cloud over our pools.
We watched helplessly as our Olympic year had to be postponed. The dreams and aspirations of many Olympic hopefuls came to an unavoidable pause. Now we have a greater task at hand in preparing for the future. The responsibility of nurturing and inspiring our Swimmers is the purview of our coaches and instructors.
The task at hand is now an even greater challenge as the people who grow and inspire these swimmers to greatness themselves are facing possibly the biggest challenges in their own lives. Our swimming coaches, instructors and their families need your support. If we can raise funds to help them survive this period, it would be a testament of our support during these uncertain times.
We will salvage what remains of the season and achieve our goal to continue growing the sport from development to senior levels. Together we can support our swimming coaches and instructors to rise above this.
We appeal to you to support of our campaign. Any donation towards this initiative would be greatly appreciated.
Please share our campaign as far and wide as possible and together we will make a difference.
Yours with sincere appreciation, please keep safe and follow the health guidelines to protect yourself and your families.
