Swim-A-Thon® is a fundraiser sanctioned by USA Swimming in which participants earn money for the BLUE WAVE BOOSTERS by swimming lengths of the pool and securing donations from sponsors. Swimmers have a two-hour period to swim a maximum of 200 lengths. Participants get pledges from businesses, family, neighbors, etc. prior to swimming. Some choose to get pledges and money prior to swimming while others get pledges per length and collect the money following the Swim-A-Thon®. With over 500 Swim-A-Thon® conducted each year within USA Swimming, this program has proven itself over and over again as a successful method of raising funds for the BLUE WAVE BOOSTERS and other teams throughout the country.

The exciting benefits of this program are that Swim-A-Thon® is not only an excellent fundraiser, but also an opportunity for the BLUE WAVE BOOSTERS to combine swimming and a social event. Additionally, Swim-A-Thon® can boost team spirit and increase community awareness of the team.
