Fundraising
 

We try to keep fundraising to a minimum, while at the same time taking advantage of any opportunity to raise funds for the Team with minimal effort/cost for our FAST families. With this in mind, the following is the Fundraising plan for next season. We expect a few additional fundraisers to be added to this plan and we will keep you posted.

SWIM A THON 2021 - May 17-21

 

Welcome FAST Parents to Swim-A-Thon 2021

On behalf of the board and coaching staff we are excited to announce our Swim-A-Thon campaign for 2021.   We feel very fortunate to be able to run our Swim-A-Thon, with a few changes this year for Covid Safety purposes. 

The Swim-A-Thon will be run the week of May 16th – 22nd, during already scheduled, individual group practices so that our numbers will still comply with our existing Covid Operational Plan.  Our usual 200 laps or 2 hours, whichever comes first, will remain as the goal for swimmers

Our club is once again fundraising using Swim Canada’s online fundraising program.  This allows us to raise money quickly and easily all from just a few clicks from our computers. 

All of us can now reach out to family, colleagues, friends, and utilize the tools of social networks in Canada and throughout the world to increase our “Swim-A-Thon” dollars raised this year. In fact, if you have ever participated in a national charity event you will know that raising valuable funds for special causes is made easier through tools like RaiseAThon. 

Our club this year has a goal to raise $5,000.00 and we will put this money towards the New Aquatics Facility, as well as ongoing operational expenses. With your help, we know we can achieve our fundraising goal. 

Our Swim-A-Thon will involve all of our competitive swimmers – details about which specific practice will be designated for the Swim-A-Thon for each group the week of May 16-22nd will be shared soon.

We are starting the fundraising campaign this year on April 11th, which gives your swimmer 5 weeks to raise funds. Please stay tuned for announcements regarding prizes for different levels of funds raised. 

We encourage parents to go online and assist your swimmer with registration.  If you have more than one swimmer and would like to register them together instead of individually, please indicate with “swimmers last name – family”; or “swimmers last name – list swimmers first names”. 

Please go to our club link at www.newbrunswickswimathon.ca/fast and register your swimmer and start spreading the word to family, friends, business colleagues, social contacts and those that support the sport of swimming in our community, province and Canada. 

Swimming Canada is unable to issue any receipts in any circumstance.  You may find out more information here:  https://swimming.ca/en/resources/swimming-canada-overview/swim-a-thon-online/ .  This year, the family affidavit is part of the online swimmer registration.  

Please show your support, and help us to provide the best resources, coaching and programs that we can by helping to raise these valuable dollars that will support our swimming program. 

If you have any questions please contact your Swim-A-Thon coordinator: Andrea Addison at [email protected]

Otherwise please contact RaiseAThon at [email protected] if you have any technical problems. 

GOOD LUCK!
