The fourth annual Community Swim Club Swim-a-Thon will be held Sunday June 11 from 8-11am! The event has taken a three year pledge to benefit Backpack for Hunger, a local organization that provides weekend meals to students of need in the Fox Chapel school district.
There are two ways for donations to be made; flat donation and per-lap donation. A flat donation is a flat amount of money that will be added to the total on the day of the fundraiser and can be donated any time before the fundraiser. A per-lap donation will vary based on the number of laps swam on the day of the fundraiser (for example, if donors pledge $0.50 per lap and they swim 70 laps, a $35 donation should be made to their page). This donation can be made after the day of the fundraiser and can be kept track of using this sheet to be turned in the day of the fundraiser. Prizes will be given for most money raised, most laps swum, and there will be a raffle into which all swimmers will be entered for a chance to win.
Swimmers 14 and up will swim from 8-9, 9-13 year olds will swim from 9:15-10:15, and those under 8 will swim widths in the shallow end from 10:30-11. Be sure to register using the link on this page.
Now, go out and raise some money for a great cause and we will see you on the 11th!! If you are an local business interested in sponsoring the event please reach out to us. Any questions can be directed to Katie Kenyon at email@example.com
