Zurf’s Up

The floating hamster wheel

One of Bremerton’s Olympians will return to town Thursday. Swimmer Tara Kirk will bring money, meet with kids and swimmers and race against the mayor.

The race will be at the Glen Jarstad Aquatic Center in the floating hamster wheels known as zurfs.

In the morning she’ll go to Crownhill Elementary. At noon she’ll meet with the Bremerton High School swim team before they leave for a competition. In the afternoon she’ll be at the high school introducing the “Chuck Haselwood Engine of Change Award, a new scholarship, part of Toyota’s national campaign.

The zurf race is a fundraiser. Anyone is invited. The price of admission is a voluntary donation to the Bremerton Schools Foundation. In addition to Kirk and Bremerton Mayor Cary Bozeman, Eric Anderson of Art Anderson & Associates will race, as will Crownhill principal Jill Carlson, BHS principal Aaron Leavell, district athletic director George Duarte and PTSA and foundation president Jonee Dubos. There may be others.

  1. Why not gather pledges right here for Thursdays race for Bremerton’s School Foundation?

    I will donate $10.00 for each Kitsap Sun reporter to enter the race.

  3. Oh..Steven, you’re no fun:) There has to be someone there at the Sun who will step up for community schools.

    Hey Sharon, maybe we should contact the Patriot…THEY might be up to the challenge.

  4. Okay then…
    Heaven help me…I don’t know how many employees you have at the Sun….but I will donate $5.00 for each Kitsap Sun employee.
