Hailed by USA Swimming, the national governing body for the sport of swimming, as the “premier minority swim competition in the United States and in the World,” the DC Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) and the United Black Fund will host “Make your Mark,” the 23rd Annual Black History Invitational Swim Meet, February 13 to 15, 2009.
The Black History Invitational Swim Meet was established to provide urban youth nationwide with the exposure to strong competition, a positive outlet for self-expression, a forum of positive role models, and the opportunity to visit our nation’s capital.
DPR is now seeking volunteers to be part of this annual event; volunteer shifts are available throughout all three days of the meet. Those interested in volunteering should contact the DPR Aquatics division at (202) 671-1289.
