Swim-A-Thon Next Thursday, May 10th (schedule, incentives)

  Swim-A-Thon is next Thursday, May 10th 2018

To accommodate all the training groups and give our swimmers enough time to complete the swim, the Swim-A-Thon schedule will be slightly different than the regular training schedule for all groups (see below). There is a pizza party at Whitworth for swimmers at the completion of their swim and a Bowling party for all Cheney swimmers (registration required on the events tab).


·         All Cheney groups will be from 3:30-5pm


·         Senior- 4:30-6pm at the Fitness Center

·         Gold- 5:15-6:45pm

·         Ripples- 5:15-6:15pm

·         Bronze- 5:15-6:45pm

·         Silver- 6-8pm


We are half way to our goal of $17,000!

Donations can be given online through the team website and very easy. Swimmers have two weeks after the event to continue fundraising and collect funds. All Donations need to be in by Friday, May 18 for submittal to USA Swimming. If you have any “offline” or cash/check donations please give them to Amy Ingalls at Whitworth during practice, leave them in an envelope in the dropbox at the pool (please do not leave cash in the dropbox) or mail them to the PO Box.
