Dear Arkansas Racers Swim Team and Families,

We are thrilled to announce that our team will be hosting a Swim-a-thon on May 7th. This event is not only a fantastic way to bring our community together but also a significant opportunity to raise funds for our team.

What is a Swim-a-thon? A Swim-a-thon is a USA Swimming Foundation-approved fundraiser that has become a popular means for swim teams across the United States to raise money for their clubs. In this fun and energetic event, swimmers earn donations by swimming lengths of the pool, showcasing the endurance and skills they’ve been developing all season. To support the Swim-a-Thon, participants receive pledges and donations from family members, friends, neighbors, and local businesses, with each sponsor either offering a flat donation or pledging a certain amount for each length completed.

How to Participate:
Start Fundraising Now: We encourage all families to begin their fundraising efforts immediately. Set up your personal fundraising page, share it with potential sponsors, and let them know about our team’s goals and needs.
Seek Pledges: Reach out to your network of family and friends for pledges. They can pledge a certain amount per length or make a one-time donation.
Swim on Event Day: On May 7th, come to practice prepared to swim as many lengths as you can! Remember, every lap counts towards our goal.
Collect Donations: After the event, collect the pledged amounts from your sponsors based on the number of lengths you completed.

Our Goal: This year, we’ve set an ambitious goal to raise $10,000. These funds are crucial for our team’s operations, including equipment, pool time, and travel expenses for meets. With everyone’s participation, we can make a splash and hit our target!

Why It Matters: The Swim-a-thon is more than just a fundraiser; it’s a testament to our team’s dedication and spirit. It’s a chance for our swimmers to push their limits, for families to bond over shared goals, and for our community to come together in support of a sport that brings us so much joy.

Your support of our Swim-a-Thon is very much appreciated! We are counting on your enthusiasm and commitment to make this event a success. Let’s dive in and make waves for the Arkansas Racers!
