'04B volunteer their services to The Christian Korte Memorial Swim Fund

Durango, CO - On September 22, 2018 the '04B Rio Rapids Durango United olunteered their services to The Christian Korte Memorial Swim Fund which had their annual fundraiser disc golf event.  Members of the team assisted with various holes on the course, communicated and interacted with attendees, and provided assistance to the staff putting on the event.  Volunteers were requested from 10am-1pm but a number of boys stayed beyond this time and were able to enjoy lunch and play a game of soccer on the field at Colorado Timberline Academy.  

The Cristian Korte Memorial Swim Fund is in its Fourth year and going strong. They provide hundreds of swim lessons to children in the Four Corners area working with the Durango Recreation Center, Sun Ute Community Center in Ignacio, Cortez Recreation Center, Farmington Recreation Center, Bloomfield Aquatic Center, and Fruita Recreation Center. 

Drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional injury-related death among children ages 14 and under. We hear every day about car seats & bike helmets, but no one speaks about childhood drowning. The Four Corners is filled with rivers, lakes, creeks, ponds, & irrigation ditches. Our motto is that Swimming is a Life Skill- It is not a sport or recreation. It is something that every person needs to know at some point in their life, you just don't know when.
