WHERE IS NYAC'S FUNRAISER?
TPASC - Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre (875 Morningside Ave., Toronto)
WHO IS PARTICIPATING?
All NYAC competitive swimmers (intro to National), parents and coaches are invited to participate.
Our goal is to raise $35,000. We are asking ALL NYAC swimmers to sign up, register and FUNraise. We can do this!
NYAC's FUNraiser will be our largest fundraising event in 2018. Monies raised through this event will allow NYAC to continue to provide excellence in programming at state of the art facilities, insure a reasonable fee structure and allow for opportunities for learning for all members of the club.
RED BLACK AND WHITE MEET
- All NYAC swimmers will be auto-committed to participate in RED, BLACK & WHITE meet.
- Information regarding the meet will be posted on the NYAC website.
WORLD RECORD ATTEMPT
- A once in a lifetime opportunity to attempt to break a world record: Largest gathering of people wearing water wings.
- Attempt will be made prior to meet warm-up.
- Every NYAC member is invited to participate but the first 350 members who sign up on http://www.ontarioswimathon.ca/nyac. and FUNraise will receive water wings (each individual swimmer must sign up rather than as a family). All other participants must bring their own water wings but will still receive a 'NYAC World Record attempt" swim cap.
