Just like last year, we will be 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.  Swimmers (with help from parents) can set up their Swimmer Profile and e-mail to family and friends.  They can track how much they’ve raised and compare with other earners in the club. 

Your swimmer needs to be registered at http://www.bcswimathon.ca/orcato participate in the Swim-A-Thon Event.

All donations will be collected through the site.  No onsite cheque or cash donations. 

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.
