Swim-a-Thon fundraising is here! This is our largest fundraiser of the season. This money will go to operating expenses for the club. The Swim-a-Thon is a fun and easy way to raise money for our team. Your athletes raise money by swimming lengths of the pool - get to 200 laps! Swimmers ask family, friends, neighbors, or businesses to pledge money per length, or make a flat donation in support of the team.

During the Covid Pandemic, our Swim-a-Thon will be held during practice the week of March 8-14, 2021

What is a Swim-a-Thon?

Swim-a-Thon is a USA Swimming Foundation approved fundraiser used by swim teams all over the United States to raise money for their respective club. To raise money for Swim-a-Thon, swimmers receive pledges and donations from family members, friends, neighbors, and local businesses.

5% of the proceeds raised from our Swim-a-Thon goes back to the USA Swimming Foundation to support learn-to- swim programs and to provide financial support to our U.S. National Team athletes and coaches. By donating to our Swim-a-Thon fundraiser, you are not only providing funds to build a stronger team at home, you are helping to give kids across the country the same great experience in the pool. USA Swimming is going to waive their 5% fee due to COVID and SUNN’s financial need.
