A HUGE thank you to our amazing Swim-A-Thon Volunteer Committee - Melissa Beltsos and Ashley Bovard - for putting together a fun event for our swimmers!!

Join us for our Spooky Halloween Swim-A-Thon Fundraiser! This year's Swim-A-Thon will be Halloween-themed, and will help raise money to buy equipment for our team and to support USA Swimming. We're looking forward to having a ton of fun!!!  The Swim-A-Thon volunteers are putting together awesome RAFFLE BASKETS!!!  We will have pictures on the website and the baskets will be available for viewing at the pool before the event. Tickets will cost $1 each or 6 for $5. THANK YOU to Ashley Bovard and Melissa Beltsos for puttting these baskets together!! 

This year we are raising money for our team so that we can buy dryland equipment! Coach Sean has provided us with a list of items we need to help make the best of our dry land training. These items include:

- Medicine Balls

- New Mats

- Battle Ropes

- Pull Up Bars

- Jump Ropes

We are asking each swimmer to raise at least $40 (although more is, of course, better!) If all 66 of the swimmers on our team raise at least this amount we will have enough money to buy the minimum number of the items mentioned above, while also contributing to  USA Swimming to help fund the outreach program. Any money raised above and beyond this $40 per swimmer, will help us be able to purchase even more of these items that we need to make our dryland program a successful part of OHYA Swimming training!!

Our goal is to have 100% participation! So even if your swimmer cannot swim at the swim-a-thon, please consider having them ask for donations!! Every little bit will do a great deal of good!
