In the early 1970s the 50-meter pool at Dads Club was one of the first Olympic-sized pools to be built in Houston — with funds raised by community members who were dedicated to giving all swimmers the opportunity to train in a state-of-the-art pool.
Fast forward four decades, and our beloved pool has become the heart of Dads Club. She is home to the swim team, swim lessons, therapy, local school teams, Red Cross training, Boy Scout merit badge work, triathlon swim training, masters swimming, and Special Olympics team.
But she is showing her age. Her gutters are failing. Cracks and holes leak away more than a foot of water a week . Restoring the pool to glory will cost $400,000. Please help us save a piece of history – for the future.
The swim marathon is an annual fundraising event that started in the 1970's and continues today. This year's fundraising is particularly critical. This one will save the pool.
Early in the morning on Saturday, October 27th and again in the evening on Monday, October 29th, Dad's Club members of all ages, levels, and programs will convene on the club to swim laps and raise money for the aging pool.
As a nonprofit dedicated to swimming for everyone, the Dad's Club greatly appreciates the help support of our members, our community, and our alumni.
