      Join us for the 2nd Annual POETIC Foundation and WATER WORLD SWIM Fundraiser to fight Childhood Cancer 

    The POETIC Foundation’s efforts are dedicated to the mission of increasing the availability of new and precise therapies for pediatric cancer patients. We focus on areas of interest that make the most impact in pediatric cancer research.

     check out their website here 

      This is a charity event that is very near and dear to us in the Water World community.  The event is funded entirely by donations from Water World members and many of us choose to donate our time to support the swim.  Swimmers are charged only a small fee for the swim and encouraged to fundraise for the POETIC FOUNDATION.  

     (Reimbursement for kayakers is at standard rates but if you would like to choose to donate your time let us know.)

    Come join us!  This is an incredible event for an incredible charity and we hope it will grow in the future!
