Friends and supporters “spring” into action at Shaw Park pool.

On Saturday, August 15, 2015, Springboard hosted the “Springboard Challenge” at Shaw Park Aquatic Center in Clayton. Dozens of supporters gathered at the center’s diving pool, helping kick off Springboard’s 50th anniversary year. Part fund-raiser, part awareness campaign, all in good fun, the event challenged participants to jump/dive/flip off the springboard into the pool, symbolizing Springboard’s leap into the next 50 years serving St. Louis students.

Cathy Hartmann, Springboard’s ED, introduced the event on Fox2News that morning. Jumpers – friends, board members, teachers and students – donned Springboard t-shirts before making their big splash.

Thank you to all, especially the aquatic center staff, for making the morning a memorable one!
