Credit cards can be used for donations made online. How does a Swim-a-thon work? • Swim-a-thon is a FUN fundraising event for LLSC swimmers! Swimmers challenge themselves to see how many lengths they can swim (up to a maximum of 200 lengths) in an allotted time period. • By collecting pledges, the swimmers get to help their club directly. All funds raised by the swimmers help to offset the cost of running our club and in the long run, help to keep our monthly fees reasonable. Please help your swimmer collect pledges for LLSC! Thank you. • This year, the swimmers have been divided into teams. Pledges collected by team members will be added together to come up with the grand total for the team. The winning team wins a stretch SUV Limo ride! Other prizes to be announced as well. • Remember…if your family collects more than $100.00 in donations, we will tear up your $100.00 swim-a-thon fee collected at registration last September. • Swimmers collect donations using the pledge form (which is located on the LLSC website). Pledges can be for each pool length swam or for a specific dollar amount: o Specific dollar amount pledges should be collected when they are first pledged o Per length swam pledges will need to be collected AFTER the swim-a-thon is over • People can pay their pledge with cash or a cheque made payable to LLSC. When are pledge forms and $$ to be returned to club? If you have collected all pledges (money) on or before the swim-a-thon date, please bring both the pledge form and all the money with you when you come to swim. If you still need to collect pledges after swimming your lengths, be sure to collect everything and return it on or before the cut-off date. Watch the website for more information about the cut-off date, which is still to be determined. Food • Beverages and snacks will be provided for the swimmers after they have completed their laps.
