Fundraising for Kansas City Blazers

USA Swimming Swim-a-thon: Swim-a-Thon is Kansas City Blazer’s single largest fundraiser. Prior to the actual Swim-A-Thon event, swimmers will obtain pledges either per lap, or as a flat donation from family, friends or neighbors. On the day of the event, swimmers swim as many laps as they can in 2 hours, with the goal of completing 100 laps or 200 laps.

Our team keeps 95% of the funds raised. 

Funds raised go towards the basic needs of the team including pool rental, new training equipment, training aids for coaches, offsetting costs associated with travel meets and running Blazer hosted meets.  The remaining 5% goes to USA Swimming to support nationwide initiatives including: Coaches Clinics, Leadership Conferences, Make a Splash Foundation and supporting the National Team Athletes and Coaches.

Corporate Sponsorship:  The Kansas City Blazers swimmers would like to thank the many wonderful businesses for their continued support in assisting the team in their quest for excellence.  These generous companies help make it possible for the KC Blazers to offer quality swim programming and first rate competition for amateur athletes in our area.
