In 1991, DSST sponsored its first Annual Bart Hopple Memorial Swim to honor its co-founder, Bart Hopple, who passed away due to complications stemming from AIDS. Bart is remembered as a funny, energetic tri-athlete who was always ready for his next challenge. This swim provides an opportunity for current team members to continue his legacy. The objective of this event is for team members to complete as many lengths of the pool as possible, individually or as part of a relay, in a continuous 1–hour swim. Team members collect pledges from family and friends, who donate money on a per length or lump sum basis, or make personal donations. A page has been set up on the team website where you can make electronic donations.  You may also bring a check, payable to DSST, to the pool on the day of the event.  Remember, it’s a fun event, not a race. All monies raised benefit programs at non-profit AIDS support agencies in San Diego.  This year’s recipient will be Special Delivery San Diego.  Special Delivery provides meals to medically homebound people living with AIDS, cancer and other critical illnesses throughout the San Diego community.


This year’s Bart Hopple Memorial Swim will take place on Sunday, June 3 at the Cameron Family YMCA pool in Santee.  We will gather at 9:30 and the swim will begin promptly at 10:00 a.m.  A potluck will be held immediately after the swim at the Cameron Family YMCA pool in Santee. Please bring a dish, snack, dessert or drinks to share.
