Event Details: Tod Spieker has generously offered to match each dollar raised at Swim With Mike – Cal. Spieker was an All-American swimmer at UCLA, competing from 1968-1971, and continues to successfully compete in Master’s Swimming. The Spieker Aquatics Center at Cal is named for former Cal water polo letterman Edward “Ned” Spieker, (Tod’s brother) who provided major funding for the facility.
The 2011 and 2012 NCAA Men’s and Women’s Championship Swimming and Diving Teams will be participating as well as the 2010 NCAA Runners up and 2006 and 2007 NCAA Champions Cal Men’s Water Polo Team. The Women’s Water Polo team in preparation for the MPSF Championship will also be on hand to lend support.
Everyone is encouraged to participate in the Swim-A-Thon or to support the Physically Challenged Athlete Scholarship Fund with a tax deductable donation in any amount.
Swimmers are encouraged to enter the Masters Challenge to double their sponsorships and be entered to win great prizes such as a trip to Honolulu for the 43rd Annual Waikiki Roughwater Swim.
