WHAT IS SWIM-A-THON?
It’s a simple, in-pool fundraiser where participants earn money by swimming the length of the pool as many times as they can. Swimmers ask family members, friends, neighbors, or businesses to pledge a certain amount of money per length, or make a flat donation in support of the team.
Athletes participating in your team Swim-a-Thon fundraiser can earn Swim-a-Thon Deck Pass Patch, participation and incentive awards from the USA Swimming Foundation, including bag tags, swim caps, water bottles, t-shirts, hoodies, towels, duffel bags, and backpacks. Plus, qualified teams are automatically entered into an annual, nationwide Swim-a-Thon contest where you have the opportunity to win valuable prize packages, and, the ultimate prize, a personal club visit from a current National Team athlete! Teams also have access to a robust online fundraising platform through TeamUnifyTM, our official Swim-a-Thon online fundraising partner.
