CONTACT:  Shari Rhodenbaugh: Board Member, Swim-a-thon Chairperson, [email protected]

We need everyone’s participation with the Swim-a-thon this year! COVID hit our team pretty hard, so let’s pull together and get back on track! It's easy...and more importantly FUN for our swimmers!  

Here is what you do…

FIRST...Each swimmer will raise $100!

  • Simply ask your family, friends, neighbors, and even previous swimmers to help you raise your $100
  • Send out emails and post on social media for your out-of-town family members! They can donate right on our website using a credit card! This is the easiest option and tax deductible if done through the website.
    • Simply go to the CY Torpedoes website: https://www.teamunify.com/team/ohcts/page/home
    • Click on the Swim-a-thon Logo
    • Next look for 'Find Participant' to search for your swimmer
    • Click the GREEN Please Donate button on your swimmer's profile page
    • Type in any dollar amount, or choose a level ($50 or $100)
  • You can also collect cash, but please turn in a check written for the amount of the total cash collected. No cash can be turned in to the team.

 

THEN...Swimmers will participate in the Swim-a-thon event on Monday, June 7th (during practice time)!

QUESTIONS? HERE ARE THE FAQs:

What will the Swim-a-thon look like?

The swimmers will swim like they do at a normal practice, but it will be an easier practice, and a lot more fun...with music, food and prizes! You won’t want to miss it!

 

Does the swimmer have to participate in the Swim-a-thon event on June 7th to collect donations?

No, the swimmer does not, however, each swimmer is encouraged to raise $100 to make it fair and help the team.

 

How will the money we raise be used by the team?

The money we raise through the Swim-a-thon this year will help us in a lot of different ways. One way is to buy new equipment for all swimmers to use; like new touch pads, power towers, and dryland equipment. We will also use this money to purchase new spirit wear for the team in the fall, just to name a few.

 

How does my swimmer receive their tickets for the prizes?

Your swimmer will be given their tickets the day of the Swim-a-thon. That way tickets won’t get lost.

 

Does my swimmer have to be there to put their tickets in the prize buckets?

Yes, the prize buckets will only be available on the day of the Swim-a-thon.

 

How many prizes are there for the top fundraisers?

There will only be 1 TOP fundraiser in each of the groups listed above, so get out there and fundraise! Plus the 12 prize buckets each swimmer will drop their tickets into the day of the event. 

 

When will the winners be announced?

The winners of the TOP age group prizes will be announced the day of the Swim-a-thon to all swimmers after they swim.

The winners of the 12 prizes buckets will be announced later that night, after the Swim-a-thon, after all groups have been given the chance to enter their tickets. An email will go out to the entire team announcing the winners!
