Welcome GSH Parents to Swim-A-Thon 2018

On behalf of the board and coaching staff, we are excited to announce our Swim-A-Thon campaign for this year.

Our club once again will be fundraising using Swim Canada’s online fundraising program. This allows us to raise money quickly and easily all from just a few clicks from our computers.

All of us will now be able to reach out to family, colleagues, friends, and utilize the tools of social networks in Canada and throughout the world to increase our “Swim-A-Thon” dollars raised this year. In fact, if you have ever participated in a national charity event you will know that raising valuable funds for special causes is made easier through tools like RaiseAThon.

Our club this year has a goal to raise $10,000 and we will put this money towards purchasing equipment, coach training and club events. With your help, we know we can achieve this goal.

Our Swim-A-Thon will involve all competitive swimmers and it will be held on Saturday, May 5th at our regular morning swim times at both the Goulbourn and Richcraft pools.

We encourage the parents to go online and assist your swimmer with the registration. (The family affidavit must be signed by the parent). The website is up and ready to allow your swimmer 6 weeks to raise their personal goals.

This year, Swimming Canada is unable to issue any receipts in any circumstance. You may find out more information here: https://swimming.ca/en/resources/swimming-canada-overview/swim-a-thon-online/

Please go to our club link at www.ontarioswimathon.ca/gsh to register your swimmer and start spreading the word to family, friends, business colleagues, social contacts and those that support the sport of swimming in our community, province and Canada. Please register your swimmer by March 31st.

Your fundraising goal is $200 per family. If you have more than one child on the team, you may create one account under the family name.

Please show your support, help us provide the best resources, coaching and programs that we can by helping to raise these valuable dollars that will support our swimming program.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
