Annual Swim Team Lap-a-thon!
Usually held in early October, this in-pool fundraiser is where our swimmers earn money by swimming lengths of the pool. Swimmers can ask family, friends, neighbors, teachers, or businesses to pledge money per length, or make a flat donation in support of the SAY Swim Team and our overall YMCA community. Annual goal of $25,000.
- General Team Fundraising / End of Season Banquet Subsidy – 10%
- Sunkissed Team - 15%
- National Team - 25%
- SAY Annual Campaign - 50% or a maximum of $15,000
If we hit our goal of $25k:
- General Team Fundraising / End of Season Banquet Subsidy = $2,500
- Sunkissed Team = $3,750
- National Team = $6,250
- SAY Annual Campaign = $12,500
National Team Fundraisers
In addition to the monies raised during the lap-a-thon, smaller team fundraisers occur throughout the year to assist our National Team at the 5 to 6 day long meet of “YMCA Nationals”. Transportation, lodging, meals, and meet fees quickly add up and fundraising is the way we ease the financial burden on our swim families.
As always any individual or family can donate on their own at any time to the YMCA via the website. www.thesay.org/give
