KISU Albatross Mega Swim: November 26th 3:30-7:30 

It’s that time of year again for our main club fundraiser of the season. Fundraising site will be live for members to customize for their swimmer on Wednesday Nov 3rd.

Proceeds from the fundraiser help us keep swimming affordable for all members as we aim to keep our membership fees as low as possible, as well as designating some funds to the KISU Angelfish program a financial assistance to families who would otherwise not be able to participate in the sport of swimming. This year with our increased pool expenses and no ability to host swim meets (a large source of revenue for the club) we are relying on KISU fundraising for the club. 

Each swimmer in the club is encouraged to raise a minimum of $100 towards our goal. We ask that swimmers share our fundraiser with family, friends, and neighbours and this can all be done online. When logging into your fundraising account on the KISU website, you will be able to personalize your swimmer's profile and then send that personalized link out through email or social media.
