Swim-A-Thon 2018!

On behalf of the board and coaching staff we are excited to announce our Swim-A-Thon campaign for this year.

Our club is once again will be fundraising using Swim Canada’s online fundraising program.  This allows us to raise money quickly and easily all from just a few clicks from our computers.

All of us will now be able to reach out to family, colleagues, friends, and utilize the tools of social networks in Canada and throughout the world to increase our “Swim-A-Thon” dollars raised this year.   In fact, if you have ever participated in a national charity event you will know that raising valuable funds for special causes is made easier through tools like RaiseAThon.

Our club this year has a goal to raise $13,000. The funds raised are essential to operating our club and in keeping registration fees from rising.  With your help, we know we can achieve our goal.

Our Swim-A-Thon will involve all swimmers and it will be held  APRIL 3/4/5 from 3:15 to 5:15 at the Nick Smith Centre pool.  (Swimmers to arrive at 3:00)

We encourage the parents to go online and assist your swimmer with the registration.  Realize this year, the family affidavit is part of the online swimmer registration.  We are also starting the fundraising campaign this year on  Feb 20, 2018 which gives your swimmer 6 weeks to reach their goal

This year Swimming Canada is unable to issue any receipts in any circumstance.  You may find out more information here.

Please go to our club link at www.ontarioswimathon.ca/absc and register your swimmer and start spreading the word to family, friends, business colleagues, social contacts and those that support the sport of swimming in our community, province and Canada.
