Lincoln Invite 2013: Pink In The Pool

Pink In The Pool CapOne month from today – the annual Lincoln Invitational will be held! Saturday, September 28th, we’ll be hosting the LHS Invite for 7 teams.  Last year we added a new element (dedicating the meet to alums). We’re building on that with this latest change, branding the LHS Invite as PINK IN THE POOL!

Of course the Lincoln Invite is still dedicated as our annual alumni meet. We’d love to see the crowd packed with former swimmers. But we thought adding this charitable element would be great for the community too.

Below is a brief summary of the meet and what some of the PINK IN THE POOL plans are, but we’ll be posting full details in just a couple weeks.

Lincoln Swimming and Action Accents are providing swim caps to all swimmers from all teams. We hope to fill the pool with pink as the swimmers wearing them throughout the meet. Plus – we’ll have silicone bracelets, T-shirts and raffle tickets available for purchase too.

All proceeds from this event will be donated to Iowa chapter of the Susan G. Koman Foundation for breast cancer research and treatments. In fact, Lincoln High School is donating all gate admissions too!

Meet Details
September 28, 2013
Diving will begin at 9:00AM
Swimming will being at 11:30AM

We hope you’re getting as excited about this meet and the new focus as we are. With over 100,000* women in Iowa being developing the disease, there’s no time like the present to help combat cancer.

Go Rails!
