CASEY SCHULMAN FOUNDATION

SHBR actively supports the Casey Schulman Foundation by the Swim Team swim-a-thon and our Trivia Night Fundraiser. The Foundation awards college scholarships to Justice High School students who carry on the kindness, positivity and interest in the world around them as Casey did.

SHBR has been an active participant in the community since our founding in 1956. We have hosted philanthropic events on our grounds and worked with local organizations for the betterment of the community.


SHINE ON — The Casey Schulman Foundation

Since 2014, SHBR has partnered with The Casey Schulman Foundation to honor a dear member and contribute more than $97,000 to a wonderful scholarship program.

Casey Schulman was a member of our SHBR swim team and taught swim lessons to many of our swimmers. Casey left us too early in December 2012 and is dearly missed. She was joyful and thankful for the simplest of things. Casey shined as a daughter, sister, friend, teammate, and scholar.

Now, through the Casey Schulman Foundation, her family spreads Casey’s spirit of joy, gratitude and kindness throughout our community. The Foundation provides college scholarships to exceptionally kind, motivated students who have a curiosity about the world and an interest in working to make it a better place. The scholarship recipients have overcome major challenges in their lives and have still found the time to improve the lives of others.

SHBR hosts a yearly swim-a-thon and Trivia Night to support this great cause. Shine on, Casey!

SHBR Swim-A-Thon

We are excited to kick off the 2022 SHBR Swim-A-Thon. This year’s Swim-A-Thon has more than 85 team members, alumni, and adult swimmers are registered. This year’s deadline for donations is July 22, please take a look at our sponsor form if you are able to contribute. This is truly a community wide event, we encourage all members to either swim, come out & cheer on the swimmers, or sponsor your favorite swimmers!

Trivia Night

We will also host a trivia night at SHBR on Monday, July 25, where all proceeds go to the Casey Schulman Foundation.

Members are encouraged to sign up for Trivia Night, simply login and sign up for a Class called Trivia Night. 100% of the registration fee goes to the Casey Schulman Foundation. Trivia Teams are limited to 6 people. We will have small prizes for the winning teams but most importantly, the opportunity for bragging rights until next year.

We hope your family will be a part of our 2022 Shine On events.


For the Kids International Charity Triathlon

SHBR is co-sponsoring the For the Kids International (FTKI) Charity Triathlon, a mini-triathlon August 28, 2022. Proceeds go the ACCA CDC (local Annandale subsidized preschool) and Kisima Academy (orphanage in rural Kenya). This mini-marathon was held in previous years at Lincolnia Pool and has now moved to SHRA and SHBR. There are various distance options that will include swimming at SHRA, biking and running. Please see the flyers at the front desk or at this site.

We’d love to raise some funds for the kids and also have a great community event!


SHBR CARES

We recognize that not everyone has the means to join a community pool such as SHBR. We also strongly believe that every child should know basic water safety regardless of whether they swim at a private pool, a neighbor’s house, a public park, the ocean, or anywhere. For this reason, SHBR initiated a new program called SHBR CARES in 2018 to teach small groups of neighborhood kids how to feel comfortable and be safe in the water. Our pool and our members are part of the larger community in Falls Church and we want to provide what we think is a valuable service to some who may not be able to join a community pool.

Taking a break

With the health restrictions put in place during the COVID-19 outbreak, SHBR was forced to put this program on hold.

Returning soon

We are making plans to bring this back once it is safe to conduct close counters lessons. Please contact it@shbr.org if you would like to be involved.
