“Running of the Sharks” is our team’s annual fundraiser and it’s an important part of our team’s financial stability. It is our biggest “non-swim meet” fundraiser of the year, so we depend on your support and participation in this fun event!


And this year, not only will the kids be swimming and counting laps but there’s more….  

1. Parents…come socialize and meet new faces!

2. Snacks for EVERYONE after the 2-hour swim

All squads and program members are encouraged to share in the fun! To participate in Running of the Sharks, we simply ask our swimmers to solicit donations from family, friends, neighbors and the community to support our team!

Share your enthusiasm for the Tigersharks and your passion for swimming and ask for flat donations or for a specific pledge per lap. Swimmers are then asked to earn those donations & pledges by swimming for up to 2 hours on Friday, October 29, 2023, from 5:00-7:00 PM.

Our team goal is $10,000, with an individual swimmer goal of $150. We’re sure we can exceed this goal with your enthusiastic support and participation.

Donations help provide pool rental, equipment, coaching and travel. The Tigersharks also provide scholarships.

The Tigersharks have a 501(c)(3), non-profit status, making all donations tax deductible.
