2019 Great Rat Race
(this is a team hosted event)
The Geneva River Rats will be conducting the Great Rat Race on Thursday June 13th with a rain date of Friday June 14th. This optional team event is the team’s only fundraiser to assist with providing the best summer swim team experience! In years past we have been able to buy starting blocks, our timing/scoreboard, scoreboard stand and much more. This also funds our annual Bagel Breakfast and Float Night. This year we will be using the proceeds toward new equipment.
This year’s Great Rat Race will take place during the regularly scheduled age group practices at Sunset Pool. Laps will be tallied over the course of a 45 minute period. All participants will get a participation gift after the Great Rat Race.
We need 10 volunteers per practice group to count laps. Go to Events – Great Rat Race and click on Job Signup to help out.
Swimmers have the option of obtaining per-lap pledges in advance of the event and/or flat fee donations. Pledge forms are available on the Geneva River Rats website under the Important Documents area. Swimmers collecting more than $50 in donations will accumulate prizes at various donations levels as described in the attached sheet. We will need the Prize Form (attached) and Donations back by Thursday June 20th. Donations and the Prize Form can be placed in the Smith (Mason & Katherine) mailbox folder in the bins located under the drop slides at Sunset Pool. Checks should be made payable to Geneva River Rats.
All prizes will be awarded at the Awards Picnic on July 16th.
We hope that families will make every effort to join us on Thursday June 13th and help us raise as much as we can for the team! Every dollar raised goes back to our swimmers in providing an awesome summer swim team experience!
