The All Swimmers Unite foundation is joining with Colorado Time Systems to raise funds to benefit struggling collegiate swim programs. The partnership will kick-off at the American Swimming Coaches Association’s World Clinic in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., September 8-13.

“This is an excellent opportunity for All Swimmers Unite to participate in a world class swimming event in order to raise awareness and funds to help secure the future of men’s and women’s collegiate swim programs,” said Nick Brunelli, co-founder of All Swimmers Unite.

The foundation is creating an endowment that will be made available to collegiate swim programs that faces elimination due to budget cuts within their college athletic department. “Collegiate swim programs provide a college education for many students who may not otherwise receive higher education,” stated Brunelli.

“We are very enthusiastic about our partnership with All Swimmers Unite at this year’s World Cinic,” said Anita Sayed, President and CEO of Colorado Time Systems. “Collegiate swimming is important to us at CTS, however we recognize that education is of paramount importance to these athletes. As our partnership with the foundation grows, they will help stabilize the uncertainty that now exists within collegiate swimming, and we are happy to help with that mission.”
