SJF Supports Eric Thovson & Family in Local Swim-a-thon Fundraiser

Eric Thovson & Family

Eric Thovson & Family

Thovson and family shown here sporting SJF colors were out in force this past month supporting High Tides Swim Club and the USA Swimming Foundation. The purpose of the event was to  raise some donations via the Swim-a-thon challenge.

Eric’s daughter Bella completed an impressive 240 laps in 1 hour and 53 minutes for a total of 6,000 meters (almost 4 miles).  Pretty awesome Bella! Eric swam a total of 1,800 meters adding to the total. Eric & Bella’s effort helped rack up some additional donation dollars for the event.

The event saw over 56 athletes ranging in age from 7 to 48 years old participate in this event in support of our non-profit organization dedicated to providing developmental and competitive swimming opportunities to children in the greater Hutchinson area. USA Swimming clubs have over 12,000 registered athletes aged 18 and under in Minnesota and it is the single largest organized activity for kids in the United States.

This event raised over $10,000 thanks to the support and generosity of it’s sponsors. 95% of the money raised stays with our local club to help fund our scholarship program for swimmers with financial hardships. The other 5% goes to the USA Swimming Foundation to support national initiatives.

Eric’s involvement in swimming had been as a Dad and President of the Board of Directors until recently. Eric is now back in the water as an official member of United States Masters Swimming. For now it is fitness driven, but at some point Erick claims he may get up the courage to race in a Master’s meet. Maybe about 30-40 pounds from now. One thing is for sure, the Sales team at SJF will surely taunt him relentlessly in his quest.
Keep and eye open in the months ahead for further updates. Till then, keep your head above water Eric and keep strok’en.
