5TH ANNUAL SWIM-A-THON
DUNELAND SWIM CLUB
5th ANNUAL SWIM-A-THON
NOVEMBER 16th, 2019
Welcome to Duneland Swim Club’s 5TH Annual Swim-a-thon! We are very excited to put on another exciting, fun, and rewarding event. This year’s event will be held at the Chesterton High School pool. There will be a lot of prizes and a way to give back to our members and teammates.
We will have prizes for the top three total dollar performers as an individual and as a family. USA swimming will once again offer prizes depending on your fundraising level. We will be setting age groups within each training group to award prizes for top lap performance during your swim. This creates more opportunity to earn a prize. Door prizes will also be awarded throughout the swim-a-thon just like last year.
Now for the most exciting part…we will be offering a 20% return of total dollars raised on any amount over $500 per family to apply to your next season’s dues or expenses! Even more exciting; you can choose to donate your 20% to a family in need of financial assistance to swim! Swim teams all over the country use swim-a-thon to raise money for their clubs operating expenses. We plan on putting funds toward more equipment both in and around the pool at the Middle School and High School as well. Lots of things always need to be replaced. We have also set up a new yearly grant opportunity for a swimmer(s) with financial need in Bear Herman’s name. As always, 5% goes to USA swimming foundation to help support the program that saves lives. Knowing how to swim and teaching others to swim, saves lives.
Come be a part of something fun and special! There will be music throughout the swim-a-thon to keep us pumped up and having fun. We will also provide lunch for all the swimmers. We will need lots of volunteers to count laps, serve lunch and check in swimmers. Please sign up by clicking on the Job SignUp tab above. Let’s make it the best day ever!!
