Robbie Ashworth was a Lakeside Hurricane many years ago who succumbed to cancer.
Every Year, LSRC has a swim marathon called the Robbie Ashworth Challenge - Splash for Cash. Donations for the Splash for Cash benefit the Children's Hospital and the Robbie Ashworth Memorial Scholarship Fund. A straight donation can be made out to Laskeside Swim Team, or an amount can be pledged for each length the participating swimmer completes. The swimmers raising the most money have the honor of "pie-ing" the coaches at our last home meet of the season. Your support is needed!
The scholarship was created in his honor and benefits a senior LSRC swimmer who is college-bound. Applicants must be on the swim team for three of the previous four years and participated in a minimum of four meets per season to be qualified for the scholarship. The applicants must write a short essay along with filling out an application. If there is more than one applicant, the recipient will be chosen by a person not associated with LSRC. This year the "Splash for Cash" will take place in June.
