What: Lap-a-thon is our annual fundraiser where swimmers are challenged to swim as many laps as possible to raise donations that keep our amazing team running. Did you know that the Marlins swim team is a 501c3 non-profit?! That means that we count on our amazing sponsors and donations from events like this to help keep registration fees down, maintain our great location, and the best coaches in the league!
How: How do you get donations? There are two popular ways swimmers can ask for donations from family and friends.
- A flat rate donation where people can choose any amount they would like to contribute.
- Amount per lap donations. This is a great way for swimmers to challenge themselves and have fun!
Here are some lap goals so you can let people know just how hard you are going to work for their donations:
- 6 & under - Up to 50 laps
- 7-8 yrs - 75 laps
- 9yrs & up - 100 laps or more!
How can families help? Our volunteers are the very best and to make this super fun day a huge success, we need a little help from our amazing Marlins families. It takes lots of food to fuel these athletes, so please bring an item to share. More details to come.
Please stay and count for our swimmers! Volunteer sign-up sheets will be shared as we get closer to this event. In additions, siblings, big swimmers, grandparents, and babysitters can help count too!
