Dear friend of swimming,

On March 23-25, 2021, during regular practice hours, our team will host a fundraiser in the form of a Swim-a-Thon at the University at Buffalo North campus in Alumni Arena Pool.
This is our annual team fundraiser; even more important this year as the Covid-19 restrictions limited our other options during the year and our expenses increased. So this is it!

Thanks to our coaching staff and seamless collaboration with UB, our swimmers enjoyed almost normal conditions for practices and team swim meets, logging in improved times and achievements.

Our parents and families have provided fantastic support to the team under difficult circumstances, and helped the team to grow both in number and quality, bringing together swimmers from the entire area to preserve and multiply the joy of swimming, camaraderie and social contacts, so important during these challenging times.

Let us all do our part to support the continued success for the team, swimmers, coaches and families. We need all hands on deck to have the best Swim-A-Thon ever!

What’s a Swim-a-Thon?
It is swimming laps as a way to raise funds for our nonprofit organization to cover operational expenses and allow us to continue working hard for the coming season. Our swimmers, coaches and some very courageous parents will commit to swimming for up to 2 hours or up to 200 lengths of the pool. Swimmers will swim as much as they can of any stroke and the number of laps will be recorded for each swimmer. Donors are more than welcome to watch their swimmers achieve their goal.

How can people donate?
Donations can be in any amount by cash, check or electronic form.

You can choose a flat donation in the swimmer’s name or you can also challenge your chosen swimmer with a “per lap” donation. The donation per lap calculation is 1 lap = 25 yards. Pledges per lap will be solicited prior to the event and donations will be collected after the event is completed. The Pledge per length calculator is attached. The flat donations will be accepted from March 1, 2021 until the end of March, 2021.

You can give your check (payable to Buffalo Aquatics) or cash to the parent of the swimmer or to the swimmer (if older than 15 years) or mail to Buffalo Aquatics, 2655 Millersport Hwy, Unit 425, Getzville, NY 14068, in the envelope attached. Pledges will also be collected during the Swim-a-Thon on deck by Buffalo Area Aquatic Club board members.

The electronic donations will be collected online via the Buffalo Area Aquatic Club website at www.buffaloswimming.com. Click on “CLICK HERE TO DONATE TODAY” on the main page, choose the swimmer(s) you would like to support and please pledge.

On behalf of our team, thank you! Swimming –and things around swimming –is our passion. Swimming is teaching skills like hard work, time management, and perseverance and we are learning a lot at every practice and at every meet. Last year was very difficult for us but we prevailed. Your support will truly make a difference for our team!

Thank you again,

Buffalo Area Aquatic Club Swimmers
