Swim-A-Thon 2017: Saturday, March 25th Info

posted in: SWIM-A-THON | 0


On behalf of the HAC board and coaching staff, we are excited to announce our annual Swim-A-Thon campaign for this year.
Once again, our club will be fundraising using Swim Canada’s online fundraising process.  This allows us to raise money quickly and easily from just a few clicks on any device. This year, our goal is to raise $10,000! Funds raised will be directed towards dive blocks at Hill Park in addition to replacing timing and starting equipment for meets.With your help, we know we can achieve our goal.
Our Swim-A-Thon will involve all swimmers and it will be held on Saturday, March 25th, 2017 (7am – 9am) at the McMaster University Pool.  We encourage parents to go online and assist your swimmer with the registration.  The family affidavit is part of the online swimmer registration.  Swimming Canada has rules around eligibility for receipts.  Under no circumstance is a Parent/Legal Guardian or Parent’s company eligible for a charitable tax receipt.
Please go to our club link www.ontarioswimathon.ca/hac to register your swimmer and start spreading the word to those that support the sport of swimming in our community, province and Canada.
This will also be a volunteer opportunity for parent and guardians. We need lap counters for swimmers.  As well, we need a few volunteers to help prepare food for a breakfast for all those hungry swimmers. Please email hacsignup@gmail.com to volunteer for the positions.
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 please contact your Swim-A-Thon coordinator, Karen Wilson, at kawilson@sympatico.ca  .
