YSF Barracudas Swim-a-Thon supporting YMCA Annual Campaign
Clock is ticking!!!
Don't wait until last minute to ask for your pledges.
Here’s a challenge for each and every swimmer on the YSF Barracudas swim team and Pre-Team! Swim far and make a difference! Get in better shape, help others and earn prizes!
Each year the YMCA of South Florida raises money for children and families who are less fortunate and receive financial assistance for membership and programming. In the past this Annual Campaign fundraising exceeded over $270,000 break down in:
  • 1,800 more kids had a safe place to go after school to learn, grow, and thrive
  • 3,000 more children learn drowning prevention and water safety skills
  • 5,000 more families had the guidance and tools to lead healthier, more balanced lives together

How does the Swim-a-Thon help with the YMCA Annual Support Campaign?

  • Swim team members attain sponsors for the number of lengths they can swim in a given amount of time. The maximum number of lengths will be 80, or you can ask for a flat pledge.
  • Swimmers 10 & younger will have up to 2 practices or 120 minutes to accomplish this. Swimmers 11 & older will have one practice (45 minutes) to complete the 80 lengths.
  • All swimmers will have a sponsor sheet in order to collect pledges. Pledges can be for a specific dollar amount or can be a dollar amount per length swam. Pledges should be collected by swimmers and turned in no later than Tuesday, March 7th. Checks should be made payable to YMCA. All donations are tax deductible.
