2019-20 Upper Arlington Swim Club Annual Swim-A-Thon
Each year, our club participates in USA Swimming’s national fundraising event, the Swim-A-Thon.
Historically, our Swim-A-Thon fundraising efforts have been used to support our travel fund, utilized by our athletes who qualify and participate in national level meets, as well as the purchase of equipment and other needs of the Club.
This year, the Swim-A-Thon plays an important role for us as our fundraising efforts will help offset the loss of revenue we usually receive by hosting our home meets, as well as support our travel and equipment funds. Because overflow space available at the high school has been limited during construction, we have reduced the number of entries we can accept, which in turn, has reduced the income from what has always been our largest fundraiser.
For those of you who have participated in a Swim-A-Thon in the past, our format for this year will be a little different. Instead of holding a single evening event, each practice group will have a Swim-A-Thon practice (date to be determined by the practice group coach) during the holiday break schedule that is sure to be challenging and fun!
The online fundraising period will be December 22nd through January 4th.
Approximately $50 in support from each UASC member will help us reach our fundraising goal of $10,000 .
Please take the opportunity over the holidays to reach out to friends and family to generate support for this important fundraising event.
The practice group that raises the most money will have a post-practice party to celebrate their success.
Please remember all donations are tax deductible.
We look forward to your participation and support!
