Princeton Recreation Department 2019 Aquathon for kids a success

On behalf of the Princeton Recreation Commission, I would like to thank our sponsors, volunteers, participants and Recreation staffers who made the 2019 Kids ‘Splash N Dash’ Aquathon a great success on August 18. Nearly 50 children ages 7-14 participated in the aquathon this year.

The support of our community sponsors allows us to run the aquathon at a very affordable price to all interested children. Special thanks to Princeton University, The Bank of Princeton, Ace Hardware, Princeton Supply, SpeedPro Imaging of Mercer County, and Baldino Brothers for their financial support and to both the Princeton Police Department and Princeton First-Aid and Rescue Squad for their in-kind support and services.

I would like to acknowledge the huge volunteer effort that helped make the event a success! Led by Princeton Recreation Team Member Vikki Caines, more than 50 volunteers marshaled the events alongside a host of Recreation staffers. In addition, Princeton Recreation Commission Chair Darius Young volunteered his DJ services to provide music for the event.

We look forward to the Kids Splash N Dash Aquathon again in 2020!
