Our annual Swim-A-Thon is next week on Saturday, March 17th!

How you can donate:

? A Check (made out to NWLSA). Please give Trey Fegley, Jennifer Russell, or Krista Bodily. I will manually enter in the donations and your child will receive credit. I will mail you a tax donation letter.
? Online: Go to, log in, and click on the left to my event fundraising. At the top right there is a button for fundraising set up. If you then click on the red set up tab, your child can make a profile and send a message to those he would like to ask to donate. You can then send a message directly to potential donors. If you would prefer not to set up a profile, you can just direct friends and family to and click on the lane rope at the top. From there, they click please donate. They can type in your child?s name and it will go to him/her. When they include their email address, they will receive a donation letter.
Donations processed online does incur a processing fee, but many people like the convenience. If you want to avoid the online processing fee, please give check or cash donations to our treasurer, Krista Bodily (708.386.0106).

The funds raised go towards:

? Travel expenses for coaches for going to away swim meets
? Parent t-shirts (at the beginning of the year)
? Team events (like Back to Southside, pizza at Alexandria, State Party)
? End of the year awards to swimmers
? Lane ropes
? Major improvements such as pool filters and the structural improvements to the small pool.

What happens on March 17:
Your swimmer can swim any stroke they?d like and take as long as they need, up to 2 hours. We count a lap as one length of the pool.

Here?s what you can expect from our swimmers:
o JV1: at least 20 laps
o JV2: at least 50 laps
o JV3: at least 100 laps
o Varsity: 200 laps (Varsity actually swims their laps at Friday practice the day before.)

? The swimmer in each group who raises the most money will receive a $50 gift card.
? The swimmer who raises the most out of all of the groups, will receive a $100 gift card.
? All swimmers who raise at least $200, will be in a drawing to win a $50 gift card.

At the Swim-A-Thon, we will still do our traditional cake walk and games with small prizes.

Help us get off to a great start by setting up your swimmer?s profile today! Share your link via email and Facebook.

All contributions are tax deductible.
