Swim-a-Thon - Trademarked by The USA Swimming Foundation.
What is it? - Swim-A-Thon is Neptune Swimming’s biggest fundraiser! Your child will earn money by swimming lengths of the pool.
How it works! - There is a 2 hour period in which your swimmer can swim a maximum of 200 lengths of the pool. Donors can pledge a certain amount of money per length or make a flat donation. All donations are fully tax-deductible.
Prizes- This year we will be awarding prizes to the top 3 swimmers who raise the most amount of money.
1st- $150.00 Speedo Bucks
2nd- $100 Speedo Bucks
3rd- $50.00 Speedo Bucks
What Does the Money Fund? - Pool rental, dryland equipment, coaches education, team t-shirts, team awards banquet, and scholarships, all for our team! 5% of the gross revenue goes to USA Swimming to support their mission to save lives and build champions.
IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ. We have moved our fundraising platform from the traditional paper pledge to a new, easy online system through Team Unify. Team Unify is the official partner of the USA Swimming Foundation’s Swim-a-Thon.
Minimum Family Fundraising Requirements-
- 1 Child = $150.00
- 2 Children = $200.00
- 3+ Children = $250.00
Money raised above the required amount does not credit toward volunteer hours.
***Members that have joined on or after February 1st are not required to fundraise this year.
How to Get Started! - We will be sending you an email with all of the details you will need to get started. Inside the email you will find the following:
- How to access your private fundraising account.
- What you can access while logged into your account.
- A video to help with tips and tricks.
- Our fundraising goal for this year.
- Directions if your family has more than one child- each will have their own page!
We are encouraging you and your swimmers to set up these pages together. Each child can have their very own personalized page to send to neighbors, family members, and friends.
Thank you for your help and support in reaching our fundraising goal! GO NEPTUNES!
