2017 WPSC Swim-A-Thon Donation Page
On May 24th and May 25th WPSC will be conducting a Swim-a-Thon to raise funds for the club and the USA Swimming Foundation.
What’s a Swim-a-Thon?
A Swim-a-Thon is a really fun way to combine something our swimmers love—Swimming!— with a wonderful cause. Together as a team, swimmers will commit to swimming for either 2 hours or up to 200 lengths of the pool on one of those days. We are asking for the support of our friends and family to either make a flat donation to support their efforts, or to pledge a certain amount of money per length for a swimmer.
You might be wondering why our swimmers would commit to spending this time swimming laps at the pool. For each individual, it is unique. However, overall, it is a great opportunity to give back to a sport that they love. Swimming has given our members a lot - it’s taught them skills like hard work, time management, goal setting, and perseverance. The money we raise will support crucial programs for our swim team, and will allow us to continue working hard for the coming season.
In addition to raising funds for our team, 5% of the money we raise will go back to the USA Swimming Foundation. The Foundation works to strengthen the sport of swimming by saving lives and building champions - in the pool and in life. Whether they’re equipping kids across the country with the lifesaving skill of learn-to-swim through their Make a Splash initiative, or providing financial support to our heroes on the U.S. National Team, the USA Swimming Foundation aims to provide the wonderful experience of swimming to kids at all levels across the country. It’s great to know that we will not only be building a stronger team here at home, but we’ll be helping to give kids across the country the same great experience that our swimmers have had!
Swim-a-Thon™ is the only pledge-for-length swimming program recognized by the USA Swimming Foundation. Since 1998, Swim-a-Thons have generated more than $30 million for swim clubs and swim programs across the country.
On behalf of the entire WPSC family, and kids across the country who might not otherwise have the opportunity to swim, thank you! Your support will give our swimmers the energy that they need to complete their 200 laps and it will truly make a difference for our team and our country!
