The Swim-A-Thon is a Swimming Canada program that directly supports local swimming programs in communities like ours across the country. Swimming Canada commits 90% of the funds raised to promote and finance swimming programs of ALL levels in the local community of the participant. This 90% commitment places Swimming Canada in the top 5% of all charitable organizations.
Swim-A-Thon involves all swimmers! Swimmers will be assigned a swim day and regular practices will be cancelled that week. Our swimmers will attempt 200 laps (5km) or 2 hours of swimming. This is meant to be challenging, rewarding, and FUN ! Swim-A-Thon also ABSC’s largest fundraising effort of the year, and gives parents a chance to earn back that mandatory fundraising fee paid at registration. Donations can be submitted online to our RaiseAThon page or collected using our pledge form. Look for more specifics via email 6-8 weeks prior to our event.
