DSC takes out 2 top prizes in Swimming NSW Laps for Life Challenge!

Our efforts in raising funds for ReachOut Australia in the Laps for Life Challenge have been recognised by Swimming NSW by the award of 2 of the top prizes.

Drummoyne Swimming Club raised the most money of all the Swimming NSW affiliated clubs that participated. The prize for this achievement is a club visit from Ian Thorpe AM. We’re currently in discussion with Ian Thorpe’s management team about an appropriate time for the visit. Keep an eye out for more details about this as they come to hand.

A huge thank you to everyone who participated in the challenge and to everyone who donated to this great cause.

There were some very generous last minute donations that ensured we stayed at the top of the SNSW leader board and fought off the spirited challenge from the Boolaroo / Speers Point Swimming Club from Lake Macquarie.

As well as taking out the top Club prize we also had the top fund raised amongst SNSW Club members in Noah Hale. For his exemplary fundraising efforts Noah has been awarded a training session at SOPAC Homebush with Adam Kable the NSWIS Olympic Park Hub High Performance Coach and members of the Australian Dolphins Swim Team.

Whilst Noah achieved the top spot on the SNWS individuals leader board he certainly wasn’t the only DSC swimmer to raise an extraordinary sum of money. He was closely followed by Cohen van Loo and all our other DSC participants who included Davina Kite, April Horton, Narelle Horton, Emily Horton, Georgina Maniscalco, Oscar Hale, Lois Waller, Olivia Nichols, Ruby Nichols, Eliza O’Neil and Adrian Bell.
