On behalf of the Executive and coaching staff we are excited to announce our Swim-A-Thon campaign for this year. Swim-A-Thon is our BIGGEST fund raiser of the year. Our kids will swim for 2 hours or 5km (200 laps), which ever comes first! Such a big effort deserves our recognition and support! Our Swim-A-Thon will involve all swimmers and it will be held on APRIL 2/3/4 at our pool, during regular swim times. Coaches will work out who swims on which day closer to April
Our club is once again fundraising using Swim Canada’s online fundraising program provide by RaiseAThon. 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.
These funds are essential to keep our club operating and registration fees low. REGISTRATION FEES DO NOT COVER THE COST OF OPERATING OUR CLUB.
Our club goal for 2019 is $15,000. With your help, we know we can achieve our goal! We encourage 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 starting the fundraising campaign this year on February 11th, which gives your swimmer 7 weeks to surpass their goal.
