Swim A Long Fundraiser Is Live!

2019 EBSC Swim A Long Is Live!

What is the Swim A Long?

The 2019 Swim A Long is a mandatory fundraiser with the goal of raising $25,000 for the Elmbrook Swim Club. On Saturday, December 7 at Brookfield Central High School participants will swim with their training group for an hour straight to see how many laps they can complete. Participants get pledges from businesses, family, neighbors, etc. prior to swimming. All donations are secured through our website. Mandatory Fundraising Levels for EBSC families are as follows: 1 Swimmer = $60, 2 Swimmers = $75, 3+Swimmers = $85. 

How do I participate?

Log in to www.ebsc.org and click on the PLEASE HELP button. Your swimmers should already be in the system. All families are required to collect pledges (see above for mandatory fundraising levels). Participation in the day of the event is not required (But is highly encouraged because it’s fun!) but fundraising prior to the event is. Parents can participate on the day of the event by counting laps for their swimmer.

Share the Donation Link with Friends and Family!

Share the donation link with friends and family.  Your friends and family can search for your swimmer and donate on behalf of your swimmer.  

Why should I donate?

To help support your swimmer and your club! To win great prizes!  And because EBSC is 501(c)(3) and all donations are tax deductible.

How can supporters make a donation for my swimmer?

We are only accepting electronic donations for this event. If friends/relatives would like to make a payment in an alternate form, they may write you a check/give you cash and you may make an online donation on their behalf. Offline donations will not be accepted.

If someone makes an online donation will their information be shared with any other organizations?

We do not share any donor information or our member list with any other organizations.

If I am not able to make the Swim A Long event am I still required to do the fundraising?

Although attendance at the event is not required (but is strongly encouraged) all families are required to fundraise the minimum amount based on their number of EBSC swimmers.

If I have a high school boy swimmer do I still need to participate?

High school boys should raise funds (either the minimum or more) even if they do not swim on the day of the event. If they do not the family will be charged the minimum.

 

Please reach out to your family and friends and help us support the club in fulfilling its mission of excellence in life through swimming.  Should you have any general questions, please contact Ann Schuelke annolen@yahoo.com. For questions about donations/money, please contact Debbie Catani, EBSC Business Manager at dcatani@aol.com .
