Swim Marathon - October 27, 2012

posted Oct 1, 2012, 6:54 PM by DCST Webmaster
The time has come for us to get to work on our club’s major fundraising event, the Swim Marathon. I hope all of you will help us to raise $32,000 and to make this the biggest and best ever. The marathon helps the team raise money to support the wonderful but aging facility that the team owns. In the past the marathon has funded new tiles, tarps, pool vacuums, learn to swim equipment, fencing, lane lines, safety equipment, plumbing and much more!

By now you will have received an email from: which will take you to the link for Your ActiveGiving Fundraising Page (don’t forget to check your SPAM and Junk email). If you have not received an email contact:

We have used this website for a couple of years and it has proved to be a great way to get sponsorship for your swimmer. The top three fundraisers will receive prizes and the top group will have a party.

Due to a big increase in the number of swimmers and our limited parking, each group will start at a different time. Please arrive about 15mins before the swim time listed so that you can get set up. The details for each group are listed below:

Group Start Times Distance or Time Sponsorship Minimum
Senior Elite 8.00am 7,000 yds $150.00
Bronze 8.30am 60 minutes $150.00
Gold 9.45am 5,000 yds $150.00
Blue 9.45am 50 minutes $75.00
Silver 11.15am 5,000 yds $150.00
White 11.15am 40 minutes $75.00

Janet and Kathy will host a meeting for new parents, Wednesday October 3rd and Thursday October 4th at 4.15pm and 5.15pm in Studio A to explain what happens at the swim marathon.
