On Thursday March 21, 2019 from 5pm-9pm Golden Bears and Pandas Varsity Swimmers, the Steadward Bears, and community participants will swim together to raise funds to support the efforts of the Steadward Bears Para-Swimming Team.

The Steadward Bears Para-Swimming Team was started in 2013, and has steadily grown from 12 to 35 swimmers actively engaged in the water 1 - 4 times per week.
 
Going the Distance - U of A Swim Challenge is a fun event developed to raise awareness and to promote the Steadward Bears Para-Swimming Team within the community. Golden Bears and Pandas Varsity Swimmers, the Steadward Bears and community participants will swim together to raise funds to support the efforts of the Steadward Bears Para-Swimming Team. 
 
This financial aid is key to the continuation of sport excellence at The Steadward Centre and assists athletes in their journey to train and compete in a sport they love. 
 
Your Gift will impact the Steadward Bears Para-swimming Team in several areas, including:
  • Increased access to high performance training resources and support
  • Budget for team training facilities and equipment
  • Budget for competition and travel
Going the Distance - U of A Swim Challenge will help remove financial barriers from the path of Steadward Bears Swimmers. With your contributions, we can make a difference in our community by keeping our program thriving.
