Winskill Dolphins Swim-a-thon 2019
Welcome Winskill Dolphin Parents to Swim-A-Thon 2019
On behalf of the board and coaching staff we are excited to announce our Swim-A-Thon campaign for this year.
Our club will be fundraising using Swim Canada’s online fundraising program. This allows us to raise money quickly and easily all with just a few clicks on our devices.
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.
This year our club has a goal to raise $25,000. With your help, we know we can achieve this goal.
Our Swim-A-Thon will involve all swimmers except the Mini Dolphins. It will be held on the morning of Saturday, March 2nd, 2019 at the Winskill Aquatic Centre. More details to follow next month.
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 will be starting the fundraising campaign this year on January 16th, 2019 which gives your swimmer over 6 weeks to fundraise prior to the Swim-a-thon.
This year Swimming Canada is unable to issue any receipts in any circumstance. You may find out more information here: https://swimming.ca/en/resources/swimming-canada-overview/swim-a-thon-online/
Please go to our club link at www.bcswimathon.ca/wdsc 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. If you have more than one child that is part of the Swim-a-thon, you can register your family name (ie Walker Family) which will make it easier to fundraise.
The fundraising requirements vary per group:
$300 a swimmer for AG Blue & Gold, Provincial & National
$200 for JD Blue & Gold as well as Conditioning & Technique
Please note that if you have more than one child that is participating, you are only responsible for the higher level swimmers fundraising requirement. At the completion of the Swimathon, any swimmer that has raised less than the minimum requirement will have the difference billed to their family account
Please show your support, help us provide the best resources, coaching and programs that we can by helping to raise these valuable dollars that will support our swimming programs.
