NOVEMBER 3rd , 2018

Welcome to Duneland Swim Club’s 4TH 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 Middle 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.  There will also be prizes awarded weekly to the individual(s) who raised the most dollars that week.  USA swimming will once again offer prizes such as sunglasses, water bottles, hooded sweatshirts, and an inflatable couch, 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 as well.  Lots of things always need to be replaced.  Last year we were able to get new dryland equipment, swimming equipment and reduce some membership expenses.  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 a DJ playing 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!!
