We will run this year’s Lap-A-Thon for a whole week – November 21st thru 27th!!! This year’s goal is $25,000.

  • General Team Fundraising / End of Season Banquet Subsidy – 10%
  • Sunkissed Team - 15%
  • National Team - 25%
  • SAY Annual Campaign - 50% or a maximum of $15,000

If we hit our goal of $25k:

  • General Team Fundraising / End of Season Banquet Subsidy = $2,500
  • Sunkissed Team = $3,750
  • National Team = $6,250
  • SAY Annual Campaign = $12,500

Time: During designated practice times from Sunday the 21st to Saturday’s Distance Challenge on the 27th!

Event Details: This will take place during our designated practice times. Whether you give $10 or $100 we are looking for 100% participation! During the week, swimmers will have a “distance aerobic set” after a short warm up with the length of time increasing for each age group. For example, our 8&Unders will swim for 20 minutes (or 30 mins if Coach Ann is cranky).

Prizes: There will be prizes for swimmers who raise the most money. More info TBA

Ways to give: Swimmers can ask family, friends, neighbors, teachers, or businesses to pledge money per length, or make a flat donation in support of the SAY Swim Team and our overall YMCA community.

How to give: Donations will be made online through the Summit Area YMCA's giving page or you can become a fundraiser and invite your friends and family to donation through our 2021 SAY Lap-A-Thon fundraising pages. More information and Links will be sent in a follow-up email.
