PRLog - Feb. 16, 2012 - RALEIGH, N.C. -- RALEIGH, N.C. – Spare Some for Autism (SSfA), a nonprofit dedicated to improving the quality of life for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), will hold a swim clinic led by competitive masters swimmer and three-time Olympic gold medalist Rowdy Gaines at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday, March 4, 2012. The clinic will take place at the Ravenscroft School pool, located at 7409 Falls of Neuse Road in Raleigh, N.C., prior to the fifth annual signature fundraising event, the SSfA Celebrity/CEO Kids Bowling Challenge at Sparians Boutique and Bistro North Hills.

The event will comprise two clinics. Coach Marie Schoening of SwimAmerica in Raleigh and assistants holding national and world Masters swimming records will assist Gaines, who will guide both clinics. Panera Bread will donate bagels and juice, and water bottles will also be available to participants.

The first clinic, free to children participants of the bowling event and siblings ages 5-17, takes place from 11:00-11:45 a.m.  From noon to 1:45 p.m., a public Masters swim clinic is open to adults and high school senior swimmers. The Masters swim clinic is limited to the first 50 people who sign up and make a donation of $25.00 or more, of which 80% is tax deductible. Interested swimmers must contact swim@sparesomeforautism.org to reserve a place for one of the 50 spots. After reserving a spot, a swimmer will be provided with an assigned a number to submit with his or her donation. Clinic participants may then donate to SSfA via the website, www.sparesomeforautism.org. Confirmations and reminders will be sent to all participants.

"Thanks to the generous support of the Marlins of Raleigh Swim Team and SwimAmerica, we are able to offer this clinic to Raleigh and surrounding areas,” said John Rhoades, swim clinic coordinator. “The participant instructor ratio of 6:1 and the credentials of the instructors makes this clinic second to none."
