New York’s leading vending supplier, Champion Vending, is a proud sponsor of this year’s The Big Swim. The 17th Annual Big Swim is a key event for New York City area fitness non-profit Asphalt Green.
Big Swim is a “swimsational” day of FREE fun swim races for children ages 6–12. Kids also meet Olympic and elite swimmers and get fun free stuff.
Champion Vending is supporting The Big Swim by donating more than 500 products for children who participate. These include nutritional snacks, healthy snacks, and beverages necessary for warm weather fun.
All proceeds go to benefit Asphalt Green’s Waterproofing program which has taught thousands of inner-city children how to swim since beginning in 1993.
This year’s The Big Swim event will be hosted by triple Gold Medallist and NBC Sports commentator Rowdy Gaines along with Canadian Olympian Nikki Dryden. The benefit allows attendees to meet and dine with Gaines and Dryden.
Asphalt Green’s five and a half acre campus is a well-known resource for New Yorkers. For two decades their mission has been to bring better fitness to New York’s kids. Recent studies show 40 percent of K-5th graders are overweight. Eighty percent of these children will be overweight as young adults, putting them at high risk to develop a variety of serious diseases.
Champion Vending is a strong believer in better nutrition, health, and wellness for children. Our healthy snacks and foods are favorites among organizations and schools that serve young people.
We believe The Big Swim will be one of this year’s highlights. A chance to learn to swim while meeting famous Olympic swimmers is a very enjoys the fun, camaraderie, and sense of accomplishment that swimming in a meet provides.
