Welcome ROW Parents to Swim-A-Thon 2019
On behalf of the board and coaching staff we are excited to announce our Swim-A-Thon campaign for this year!
ROW once again will be fundraising using Swim Canada’s online fundraising program, RaiseAThon. We will now be able to reach out to family, friends and colleagues and utilize the tools of social networks to increase our “Swim-A-Thon” dollars raised this year.
Our club this year has a goal to raise $10,000 and we will put this money towards purchasing new timing equipment so that we can continue to host meets!
Our Swim-A-Thon will involve all swimmers and it will be held on Saturday, May 4 at the WLU pool.
6:00 AM - 8:00 AM for Senior 1, Senior 2, Gold and Silver
8:00 AM - 10:00 AM for Bronze 1, Bronze 2, Steel, LTT and TOP
Breakfast will be served from 7:00 AM - 9:00 AM for the low cost of 2$ per person in the classroom across from the pool gallery.
PRIZES: Stay tuned for the announcement of exciting prizes for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place individual fund raisers! Following tradition, each swimmer that raises at least $100 will receive a ROW swim cap. Something NEW this year will be raffle tickets! When you raise $100 you receive 1 raffle ticket, you receive another raffle ticket for each $50 after that. Your tickets will go into a draw to win a prize! So, the more money you raise, the more raffle tickets you get!
This year Swimming Canada is unable to issue any tax receipts in any circumstance. You may find out more information here: https://swimming.ca/en/resources/swimming-canada-overview/swim-a-thon-online/
