The Swim-A-Thon, Boat Regatta and BBQ are back!

The DDD Swim-A-Thon is a special fundraiser in which swimmers earn money for our team by swimming lengths of the pool during a set period of time. This year’s event will occur on Thursday, June 23 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm at Union Mine High school. The Swim-A- Thon is our only big fundraiser this year. We are combining the Swim-A-Thon, Boat Regatta and a family BBQ. There will also be some fun competitions as biggest splash and silliest jump. Every child who participates gets to pick a prize from the prize table and they may pick two prizes if they swim more than there required laps. This year we have lots of fun prizes and gift certificates. The age group who has the most participation gets an ice cream party the following week at practice. The top 10 contributors will get a DDD towel (not sold at team wear) and the top 100 contributors will get a water bottle with candy. There will be some fun raffle prizes also.

And let's not forget about our Boat Regatta! Our made with love Card Board, Duck tape vessels will sail across the pool waters, propelled by our swimmers and families cheering on the boat captains of the pool. More information about regulations for Boats to follow.

This event is a fantastic opportunity for the swimmers and families to come together, build confidence and teamwork in our athletes, and cheer one another on. This fundraising effort is especially important to DDD as we receive no support from public funds. DDD is a 501(c) nonprofit and is solely dependent on program fees, swim meet revenue and contributions from local businesses, family and friends. Funds raised during our Swim- A-Thon support the club by helping us keep registrations costs low amid rising pool rental fees.

Our Swim-A-Thon goal this year is $5,000. Thank you in advance for providing this generation of swimmers and those of the future with an opportunity to pursue swimming with Dry Diggins Dolphins. Thank you to our sponsors who donated prizes

Sincerely,

Dry Diggins Dolphins Board and Coaches
