The 2022 Patrick Vega Memorial Swim-a-thon

After the two years off from the pandemic, the 2022 Swim-A-Thon came back swinging! Together with the help of the OHS swim teams, water aerobics and helpful friends and family, we were able to almost triple our donation goal! Together, those that particpated swam 25x100s in honor of Patrick. We would like to give a big thank you to Bridget Partida Donlon for helping us organize this Swim-A-Thon!

2022 Recipients

These are our 2022 Patrick Vega Swim Scholarship recipients. We were able almost triple our donation goal and as a result are gave back to our communities! We are grateful for each one of our recipients and their dedication to our aquatics programs. Unfortunately, Oxnard has not had swim lessons since the pandemic, so for the time being we will be donating to pre-existing organizations.

OHS Aquatics

Both OHS girls and boys swim teams received a donation from the 2022 Patrick Vega Swim-A-Thon. OHS is Patrick and Kate’s alam mater and we love supporting their aquatics programs! They will be an annual recipient.

Survival Swim with Kim Infant Aquatics

After loosing her daughter, Kiri, to drowining, Kim O’Brien has dedicated her life to saving young children from drowning. Kim specializes in Infant Aquatic Survival lessons for children ages six months and up.

“Our lessons are private one on one instruction 4 days a week for 10 minutes each day.  This structure allows small children to focus and retain what they have learned.  Most children complete the program, knowing how to float, in 4-6 weeks.” – Survival Swim
