Welcome OSAHC Parents to Swim-A-Thon 2019-2020

On behalf of the board and coaching staff we are excited to announce our Swim-A-Thon campaign for this year.

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

All of us will now be able to 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 and we will put this money towards reducing pool costs.   With your help, we know we can achieve!

Our Swim-A-Thon will involve all swimmers in AG3, 2, 1, Senior & Varsity  and it will be held on March 28, 2020 at the Donevan pool. (More details to follow).

We encourage parents to go online and assist your swimmer(s) with the registration.  Realize this year, the family affidavit is part of the online swimmer registration.   The fundraising campaign will start on February 9 which gives your swimmer(s) 6 weeks to raise funds! 

This year Swimming Canada is unable to issue any receipts under any circumstances.  You may find out more information here: https://swimming.ca/en/resources/swimming-canada-overview/swim-a-thon-online/

Please go to our club link at www.ontarioswimathon.ca/oshac and register your swimmer(s) 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. We do suggest this if you have multiple swimmers to create one account for the family, it is easier for a donor to donate to one site.

Each swimmers fundraising goal is $100.

There are lots of prizes to be won so don't miss out.

The top fund raiser will win Apple AirPods.

Every week, the top earner of that week will receive a prize! 

Every time you raise $100 dollars your name will be entered into the draw which will be held March 30th.

 

Prizes will be awarded to the top earner each week.

Draws will be held on:

Sunday February 16th, 23rd, March 1st, 8th, 15th & 22nd. With the grand prizes for the Top Earner on March 30th at the Pool. 

Prizes will be brought to the pool on the Monday after the draw and given to the coaches.

Please show your support, help us 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 organizer Sarah Davis

Otherwise please contact RaiseAThon at swimmingcanada@raiseathon.ca if you have any technical problems.
