Our Swim-a-Thon Fundraiser will take place on March 18th from 5-7pm. There will be no practice this evening. A Swim-a-Thon is a pledge-based program recognized by the USA Swimming Foundation. Participants earn money by swimming lengths of the pool. Swimmers get pledges from family or friends to support their efforts. Donors can either pledge a certain amount of money per length, or make a flat donation in support of our team. Swimmers may complete a maximum of 200 lengths.
This is a mandatory PTAC fundraiser. All families are required to participate. Those swimmers wishing to collect lap donations may pick up a Swim-a-Thon form in the pool office. Families must submit a minimum of $25 in pledges. Parents/Guardians are responsible for counting their swimmer’s laps. If your swimmer chooses not to swim at the Swim-a-Thon, a $25 flat fee is due per family. Please only take a Swim-a-Thon form if you are collecting pledges. All payments should be submitted in an envelope with the swimmer’s name and a check made out to PTAC. Please place these in the Treasurer’s folder in the pool office. Please do not send cash. All payments are due no later than March 25, 2020.
Community members and businesses wishing to donate may send their contributions to Penn Trafford Aqua Club P.O. Box 83 Harrison City, PA 15636. We thank you for supporting our team.
A portion of our earnings is donated back to the USA Swimming Foundation. Let’s make this a great fundraiser for PTAC and all of USA Swimming. The swimmer collecting the most donations will be awarded with a special prize at the end of season banquet. If you have questions about the Swim-a-Thon, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you March 18th!
