It’s 3 p.m. Friday, and most students already have their sights set on the next 48 hours of fun and relaxation. Unlike students, the Livermore Valley Education Foundation’s (LVEF) scholastic focus doesn’t end when the bell rings on Friday. Their mission continues without recess, lunch break or summer vacation. LVEF relentlessly pursues its goal to preserve and improve academics, arts and athletics in the Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District, even on picture-perfect Saturdays when school and education is the last thing on kids’ minds.
This picture-perfect Saturday was different though. The American Swim Academy hosted the Walk 4 Education at Livermore High School, an event to raise money and awareness for LVEF with the help of The Net Foundation. Much like LVEF, The American Swim Academy has a strong focus on education. From toddlers to adults and from novice to expert, the American Swim Academy welcomes all ages and all skill levels. They even offer classes on safety and CPR for their students. The American Swim Academy has locations throughout the Bay Area, including Livermore, Dublin, Fremont and Newark. All locations offer year-round classes and we encourage everyone to visit their website to get involved.
Families of all ages showed tremendous support and helped turn this year’s event into a huge success. The fun-filled Saturday included a walk-a-thon, a silent auction, martial arts demonstrations and cheerleading performances. We were happy to be a part of the event and want to share some great photos of a wonderful day. Enjoy!
