YOUR CLUB SHOULD HOST A SWIM-A-THONTM TODAY!
What is a Swim-a-ThonTM?
Swim-a-ThonTM is a fun and easy way to raise money for your team while supporting the USA Swimming Foundation! It’s a simple, in-pool fundraiser where participants earn money by swimming lengths of the pool.
Swimmers ask family members, friends, neighbors, or businesses to pledge a certain amount of money per length, or make a flat donation in support of the team. Athletes participating in your Swim-a-Thon fundraiser can earn participation and incentive awards from the USA Swimming Foundation, including bag tags, sunglasses, water bottles, t-shirts, and/or an inflatable couch. Plus, qualified teams are automatically entered into an annual, nationwide Swim-a-Thon contest where you’ll have the opportunity to win valuable prize packages, and, the ultimate prize, a visit from a National Team athlete!
Why should your team host a Swim-a-ThonTM?
