2019 TMEC Swim-A-Thon
(this is a team hosted event)
Hello TMEC Members,
Temecula Tritons will be having its 2019 Swim-A-Thon on Saturday October 5, 2019 at Murrieta Mesa High School (Sent in email). Swimmers from our club will be fundraising over the next few weeks leading up and then on the day of the event they will have one hour to see how many laps they can achieve. All of this to help our team raise extra funds. Fundraising officially opens up Monday September 2nd.
Our swim club has many activities or equipment needs that are not covered by the monthly dues. Proceeds that are raised by events like our Swim-A-Thon will go towards covering relay team entries, travel for swimmers and coaches to away meets, awards/ recognition for swimmers achievements, swim clinics, and equipment such as team ez-ups, stop watches, team practice equipment, and timing system items for meets we host. By donating you can help our swimmers have these extra items and events that can bring their swimming experience to the next level. Remember there is a fundraising of commitment of $100 per family for the year and this will be the last chance to fulfill that before the year is up or be invoiced. (Stroke School #1, Stroke School #2, PreCompetitve and Fitness are exempt but we encourage you to still participate).
We are a non-profit organization and all donations are considered a tax write-off. For tax information please contact Head Coach Jenn at firstname.lastname@example.org
For members on the team this event will be a competition not amongst just the swimmers but amongst our swim groups as well. With the use of our fundraising platform swimmers will be able to create their own personal page and then join their groups team for the fundraiser; you must join the appropriate team to be able to join. Fundraising will be open till 2 weeks after the swim-a-thon is complete. The platform will track real time fundraising at the end of each week between September 3rd– October 20th.
