2019 Annual SSC Swim a Thon
This is a yearly fundraising evening in which 95% of the proceeds goes directly to SSC and 5% goes to the USA Swimming Foundation. 100% of the donations obtained is tax deductible.
The Annual SSC Swim a Thon will be held Sunday, November 3, 2019 and is a day long event for the entire team. Each practice group will be assigned a designated 2 hour time slot to complete as many laps as possible during that time slot. Over the next 6 weeks, swimmers are asked to obtain donations from families, friends, and local business to support their effort's. The donation portal will be set up and open for donations this evening, so start gathering your swimmers list of people to ask. The online portal is an easy way to ask for donations and each swimmer can set up his/her personalized donation portal to send out to their list of potential donors.
An email with more detailed instructions with the opening of the Swim a Thon donation portal will be opened this evening. If you have questions, please feel free to ask Coach Tara!
