All proceeds from this year’s race will be donated to Mission Valley Aquatics, whose vision is “to provide a state-of-the-art aquatic facility that enhances the health, fitness, safety, recreation and quality of life for all in the Mission Valley.” Through years of hard work, careful planning, tireless fundraising and perseverance, the dream for this facility is finally coming true! Here’s a brief update from MVA on the status of the building and fundraising projects.
“In case you haven’t been to the site lately, you may be pleased to know construction is nearly complete with an anticipated November 2012 opening date. To date, we have raised $3.3 million and borrowed $1 million in private loans, but we have not quite reached our fundraising goal for the $5.2 million project.”
The aquatic center will feature an 8 lane, 25 yard lap pool (that meets specifications for high school state level swim meets) and a smaller pool “suitable for instruction, therapy and aqua aerobics.” Not only will a facility like this encourage and strengthen healthy exercise habits in our youth (and those still young at heart!), but meets and events held in this facility will bring people in to Polson, with dollars to spend strengthening our business community. Definitely a win-win situation!
Come participate in the Live Locally 5K Run/Walk on October 20th and be a part of making Polson healthy!!
