Because of COVID-19 restrictions:

  • Only team members of Blue Wave and the Otters may participate. 
  • In-person spectators will not be permitted but the event will be live streamed on the team’s Facebook page for family, friends and donors to watch!
  • Donations must be submitted electronically as flat amounts (rather than per lap) through the team’s donation webpage. PLEASE NOTE: Donors must enter the name of the participant for whom they are making their donation in the Leave a Comment box for the participant to receive credit.


The Top Fundraiser(s) and the number of tickets awarded to participants will be determined based on the total money raised by each participant as of 11:59 pm CST on Thursday, December 3, 2020

Participants will receive their tickets at the Holiday Swim Fest. After their swim is completed, they will allocate their tickets to the specific prizes they would like to win. Participants may only win one of each type of prize.

Our corporate partners have donated a lot of great prizes!
