11th Annual Karen Gordin Turkey Swim

Fundraiser for Karen M. Gordin Scholarship Fund

Submitted By HARD

November means fall is in the air and Thanksgiving is just around the corner. It is also time for the Karen M. Gordin Turkey Swim. Every Thanksgiving Day, the Hayward Plunge Staff raise money for the Karen M. Gordin Scholarship Fund. Karen was a lifeguard for the Hayward Area Recreation and Park District who was tragically killed in a car crash in 2001. She was very much loved at the Hayward Plunge and we want to carry on her name and the values she held dear.

The scholarship is given to two individuals who are currently certified lifeguards and in school working towards his/her goals. Between 9:00 am and 9:30 am the scholarship committee will award two $1,000 checks to the award recipients. One of the checks is donated by the Greater Hayward Area Recreation and Park District Foundation, and the other by the Scholarship Fund itself. The latter is completely funded by donations.

For the remainder of the morning, patrons can swim laps and receive assorted prizes and goodies. Come burn calories in the morning to make room for all that turkey while supporting a good cause.

We ask for a minimum $4 donation. All donations are tax deductible. Checks, payable to The Karen M. Gordin Scholarship Fund, can be mailed or hand-delivered to Hayward Plunge, 24176 Mission Boulevard, Hayward, CA 94541.
