A member of the Reach for the Wall staff recently received the following announcement for the inaugural Pierce English Memorial swim meet:
We are excited to announce that MFST will help support a swim meet organized by JFD and TIBU in order to raise funds in Pierce’s honor for Manasseh House, a nonprofit dedicated to helping young men, ages 18 to 24, as they transition from the foster care system into the real world. Pierce English was a beloved member of our swim community for 11 years as an athlete, coach, and a lifeguard. Manasseh House teaches these men to lead through integrity, become champions of hope, and live with moral values in the community – all ideals that Pierce honored.
Meet Info: Saturday, December 30 from 1-4pm at the Quince Orchard “Bubble”
The entry fee is $25 per swimmer and 100% of all proceeds will be donated. Checks can be made out to Manasseh House or made online at http://www.manassehhouse.org via paypal. The Manasseh House is a registered 501(c)(3) organization. Therefore, any donations to Manasseh House are tax-deductible and likely eligible for employer match programs.
*The first 200 entries will receive a free t-shirt.*
