Swim-a-thon

Swim-a-thon

Each November the club holds our annual Swim-a-thon. This is the clubs only fundraiser and we expect each club member to participate and help us met our fundraising goals. 

This is a super fun event where your child will far exceed your expectations of what they can swim in 2 hours. 

 

Sponsorship Program

Each year we are looking for local businesses to be part of our Swim-a-thon corporate sponsorship program.  

The cost is $100 and your Business Logo will be on the t-shirts each swimmer receives after they have raised a minimum of $20.  The support from a few business sponsors allow all the swimmers to receive a T-shirt while allowing all the money the kids raise to help support the club. 

 

How it works

  • Each swim club member will be given a pledge sheet to collect pledges. Pledges can be either a flat rate or an amount per lap. Please gather as many pledges as possible before the event. 
  • Swimmers swim a far as they can in 2 hours and then the amount owing from the pledges is calculated and donated to the club. 
  • Each swimmer that raises a minimum of $20 in pledges will get a Sea Wolves t-shirt with all participants’ names on the back. 

 

What to expect on the day

  • Please pack plenty of easy to eat snacks for your swimmer and water to keep them hydrated. 
  • Swimmers are to arrive at the pool at 5:55am and can access through the doors directly from the parking lot into the pool. Swimmers should be ready to jump in the water by 6:05am. 
  • Each swimmer will need a lap counter to count laps and keep them hydrated and fed for the 2 hours. 
  • At the end of the 2 hours there will be a pancake breakfast for the swimmers and their family. 
  • We are dividing the swimmers into six teams of 10 kids. The teams will be eligible to win prizes based on the number of lengths that the entire group does. We are hoping to foster some team building (and maybe a little healthy competition) by having the groups support each other in the lead up to, and during, the swim-a-thon itself. The groups will come up with their own team name and we will be tie dying t-shirts and picking team colours before the Swim-a-thon.
  • Pledge money will be collected at the pancake breakfast or pledge money can be emailed to the swim club at whistlerseawolves1009@gmail.com. All pledge money must be received within 2 weeks of the event to receive your t-shirt.
