Description

Description

Laps for Charity is a simple, in-pool fundraiser where the kids earn money by swimming lengths of the pool during a fun, team building event. A large portion of donations collected help make a few kids wishes come true at Make-a-Wish foundation.  Last year we sponsored two wish kids, Alfonso and Jillian.  Alfonso is from Menmonee Falls and his wish is to go to Greece.  Jillian is a 6-year-old from Menomonee Falls who’s living with neuroblastoma. She enjoys running under the sprinkler, playing with Play-Doh, playing princess and reading books. She wishes to go to Walt Disney World® Resort.

Swimmers ask family members, friends, neighbors, or businesses to pledge a certain amount of money per length, or make a flat donation of support. Donations are tax deductible. Each group has a different amount of maximum lengths they can swim during their designated time. Each swimmer can set a goal for how many lengths they would like to accomplish.  There will be counting sheets available at the event for parents to use to count swimmer’s lengths for them. Swimmers are not allowed to use fins, but may use kickboards to kick if desired.  We will have a "Donate" button our our homepage once we have a date set.

When:  Date TBD. Seniors and SA/GA swim max 2 hours. All other groups swim max 1.5 hours. Back by popular demand, swimmers will get a chance to smash a pie in the coach’s face -see incentives below.  Location TBD

Why: Rocket Aquatics is once again donating majority of proceeds to Make-A-Wish!  Please see attached documents for more details, also attached are sponsor forms and donation receipts

Incentives: Coaches are running weekly incentives (game time at practice) for most kids signed up per group and most donations per group!

Free raffles at the event- lots of good giveaways, lots of treats and music during the event!

Prizes:  $100 raised = swim-cap, $250 raised = t-shirt. 

Free 30min private lesson to top 6 kids bringing in the most in donations. 

Every $150 raised will earn one throw of a pie at a coach of swimmer’s choice.

Minimum pledge to participate =$25

(Prizes will be awarded per swimmer, not total family amount)
