Join us for our annual
Join us for our 4th Annual Polar Splash – this year it’s virtual!
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced changes across the globe, including affecting many fundraisers. This year our annual polar splash fundraising event is going virtual. The 2021 Virtual Spring Lake Shiver has 3 options:
Film yourself and/or your team as a bucket of ice water is dumped over your head or take a safe plunge in a cool body of water. Remember to have a Water Guardian observe the water if you jump in and don’t forget that costumes make the Shiver even more fun! Share on social media with #SpringLakeShiver #LetsStopDrowning #Virtual
Share 3 facts to increase awareness of drowning prevention AND nominate a minimum of three people to do the same thing. Nominees will have only 24-hours to complete the challenge and make a donation to the Jack Helbig Memorial Foundation.
The Jack Helbig Memorial Foundation will greatly miss getting together with the community to make a splash for drowning prevention this year. We hope we can be together again in 2022!
Virtual Event Ends February 1st
Wherever you choose!
Everyone that loves to have fun for a great cause!
Swim for life
Many people within our community often do not learn the critical water safety and swimming skills to keep them safe. The Y is working to address this important issue by offering Swim for Life, a free water safety and swimming program. With so many bodies of water throughout the Wilmington area, it is critical that we provide individuals with the basic knowledge of water safety to reduce the risk of drowning or injury.
Brunswick School of FISH
Brunswick School of FISH is a partnership between BCC Fitness & Aquatics Center and the Jack Helbig Memorial Foundation.
Swim Scholarships will be provided for local children to take swimming lessons FREE of charge that have not been able to attend due to cost. After being chosen through an application process, they will then begin their eight week session of learning basic swimming and water safety skills that will help them be safer in and around the water.
