Donate Now to Save the Bay and Win a Chance to another Worthy Charity of YOU Choose!
A chance to do something good for our RI bay AND charity of YOUR choice.
To participate in my annual donation just click the donate button.
Then send me an email (CdrJimparham@hotmail.com) and predict my time. If you come closest to predicting my time, I double your donation to a charity of your choice and award YOU the fund-raising prize which has been a kayak. The kayak is done by gift certificate so if you are out of RI, there will be an equivalent prize for you. The fundraising prize is usually quite good.
*If you have any questions or want to bet/donate by mail, email or call 256-4581232. Leave a vm at best time to call back. Would love to hear from you! NO--I will not provide "insider information"; as always, I will be swimming to the fastest time submitted.
Refresher on the drill:
HOW DO YOU PREDICT? I have done the 2-mile swim 15 times, in minutes:
Times for each year are shown below with past prediction winners and the charity each supported.
If you want to get more technical in the prediction see spread sheet in Email which includes my times in minutes (converted to decimal), a graph of all 15 swims with trend line. If you predict the same as somebody else, highest donor wins. In event donations are the same, whoever has donated and predicted first will be awarded the prize. Good Luck! May the best Predictor win!
