Editor’s note: The following information was provided by the J-Hawk Aquatic Club.
The J-Hawk Aquatic Club would like to thank our sponsors and participants for making a difference in the lives of our youth in Whitewater and surrounding communities. The J-Hawk Aquatic Club (501(c)3) provides both swim lessons and competitive swimming. It is the mission of the J-Hawks to be able to provide this programming to all youth. No child is ever turned away due to financial constraints. For youth on free or reduced lunches in their district, they receive free or reduced lessons or competitive swimming respectively.
By hosting runs such as the Summer Sizzler and a Run Into Fall 10K/5K in October, along with the Earlybird and Latebird Triathlons, we are able to hire instructors and coaches to make this mission possible.
On July 10, 2021, the J-Hawks hosted a 10k Run and 5K Run/Walk. 77 participants took part.
The J-Hawks would like to thank the City of Whitewater, Fairhaven Senior Living, Whitewater Register, Whitewater Banner, sponsors, and those who donated for making a difference.
Congratulations to our overall male and female runners: 10K Overall Male: Connor Hackett 35:38.1; 10K Overall Female: Heidi Mane: 44:16.1; 5K Overall Male: Cameron Lenz: 19:16.8; 5K Overall Female: Mychelle Ehlei 19:53.1.
