Swim-A-Thon Update #3

Dear KING families,

We have TWO winners for the top earner in week 3! Andrew Johnson from KCAC’s Regional group and Rachel Johnson from KCAC's Novice group each brought in $1,000 so they tied as the top earner. Both have won a $25 iTunes card. Thank you for your hard work, Andrew and Rachel!

Our Swim-A-Thon is just two weeks away! Have you checked the practice schedule yet to see where and when your group is swimming on March 2nd? Here’s a breakdown of the locations and times:


Kent Meridian Pool
Mount Rainier Pool
Newport Hills Pool
Seniors: 6:00-8:00am
National: 6:00-9:00am

KING Boosters are providing the food this year and there will also be music, prizes, and of course, your KING friends. You won’t want to miss out! A few things to note…

  1. Families with swimmers in different groups have the option of swimming at one pool.  Please talk to your coach if this is something you plan to do. 
  2. Swimmers who are unable to participate on March 2nd will make up their laps at practice the following week.
  3. Volunteer jobs at each site will be available so look for the email announcing job sign-ups.

It’s still not too late to start fundraising! The deadline for prizes is March 31 so keep sending those letters and emails! We have already raised over $15,000 and with everyone participating, we can reach our goal of $60,000. The top earner in week 4 will win a $25 Amazon gift card. Go KING!
