Virtual Monster Swim 2021

Week of March 22nd through March 27th

Our 2021 Monster Swim fundraiser is quickly approaching and we are looking forward to seeing all our swimmers jump in the pool and swim their laps for PASA! The Monster Swim is an important fundraiser for our team as it allows up us to maintain our pool, team supplies and team operational needs. This year are needs include, but are not limited to:

  • Timing System
  • Scholarships
  • Participation in events (buses, Olympic trials registration, etc)
  • Water fees for peel rentals (Rinconada, PALY, Sacred Heart, etc.)

We are asking all PASA members and swimmers to help us by pledging and fundraising for our annual Monster Swim. Swimmers can collect flat donations, or swim laps and receive donations per lap. As usual there will be prizes and rewards associated with participation.

 

As a non-profit, any contributions to PASA are tax-deductible. Also, many of our families take advantage of matching gift programs offered by their companies. Please ask your HR for more information as this is a way to double your donation to PASA.

What Do Swimmers Need to Do?

  • Read the Monster Swim packet
  • Ask relatives, friends and neighbors for a flat or per lap donation. For safety reasons, swimmers should not be going door-to-door without parent supervision.
  • Ask your sponsors to fill out a Pledge Form and then provide them with a PASA Monster Swim Donation Receipt. To potentially double donations, check companies that have Matching Gift Programs.
  • Collect flat donations beforehand, and per lap donations after the Monster Swim. Flat donations are easier and faster to collect and process.
