Laps for Charity

May 16, 2019
May, 10 2019

Description

Laps for Charity is a simple, in-pool fundraiser where the kids earn money by swimming lengths of the pool during a fun, team building event. A large portion of donations collected help make a few kids wishes come true at Make-a-Wish foundation.  Swimmers ask family members, friends, neighbors, or businesses to pledge a certain amount of money per length, or make a flat donation of support. Donations are tax deductible. Each group has a different amount of maximum lengths they can swim during their designated time. Each swimmer can set a goal for how many lengths they would like to accomplish.  There will be counting sheets available at the event for parents to use to count swimmer’s lengths for them. Swimmers are not allowed to use fins, but may use kickboards to kick if desired.  Click the "Donate" button our our homepage to donate today!!!  

When:  Thursday May 16th . Seniors and SA/GA swim 3:45-5:45pm (max 2 hours). All other groups swim 6:15-7:45 pm(max 1.5 hours). Arrive by 5:30pm to check in for the pie-in-the-face event which will be 5:45-6:15pm outside in courtyard by pool entrance. Back by popular demand, swimmers will get a chance to smash a pie in the coach’s face -see incentives below. 

Why: MFSC is once again donating majority of proceeds to Make-A-Wish! Last year, we sponsored Ashley an 11yr old from Muskego who is living with lymphoma.  Her wish was granted and she went on a Disney Cruise and swim with the dolphins!!! There will be food, prizes and music during and after the swim. We should find our who we are sponsoring this year soon! Please see attached document for more details, also attached are sponsor forms and donation receipts

Incentives: Coaches are running weekly incentives (game time at practice) for most kids signed up per group and most donations per group!

Free raffles at the event- lots of good giveaways, lots of treats (including the popcorn machine!)  and music during the event!

Prizes:  $100 raised = swim-cap, $250 raised = t-shirt. 

Free 30min private lesson to top 6 kids bringing in the most in donations. 

Every $150 raised will earn one throw of a pie at a coach of swimmer’s choice.

(Prizes will be awarded per swimmer, not total family amount)
