OBTAINING A LIST OF YOUR SPONSORS & SENDING A THANK YOU NOTE: To protect the privacy of the people who donate to the Swim-A-Thon, King Aquatic Club & KING Boosters will NOT post the names of the donors on this website. However, we do keep a list of donors for each swimmer. If you would like to have a list of the people who donated for your swimmer(s), just send an email request and I will send you the list. Once you have the list, please have your swimmer(s) send a thank you note to your sponsor ASAP! As a suggestion, personalize your thank you note and include a photo of your swimmer(s) during competition or around the pool at a swim meet.
2011 SWIM-A-THON WELCOME!
Welcome to the 2011 King Swim-A-Thon! The Swim-A-Thon is our main fundraiser of the year, so it’s important that all families get up to speed on what we are doing and join in on the fun. The format for the event will be announced soon. Please read the entire overview document to become familiar with key dates, tips for success, who to contact for help, and information about the Swim Event on 3/4/2011. We are excited to get started with our Swim-A-Thon and look forward to 100% participation from families and swimmers. There are some cool prizes and giveaways planned for the donation campaign and the swim event that you will want to read about.
(1/3/11) Swim-A-Thon 2011 Overview document is available, click here.
Start getting your addresses ready! A great tip is to pre-print mailing labels for potential donors and return mailing labels (your address). Pool reps are now distributing the donation letters and envelopes,.
The prizes and levels from USA Swimming will remain the same. The 2011 KING Boosters prize list is coming soon. NOTE: If you are a family team, you will share your prize with other family team members.
Last year KING raised over $56,000 helping to fund programs such as financial aid, relays at meets, team travel, developmental/novice group mini meets, and more. Our goal is 100% participation by all families during the 2011 KING Swim-A-Thon. If we meet that goal and each family raises $200, we will easily surpass our team record and achieve the goals established by the KING Boosters Board for the 2010-11 swim season! It is not hard and does not take much time or effort. All we ask of you is to try and make an effort to help fundraise through Swim-A-Thon. You will be amazed at how many people WILL give even in these economic conditions. All you have to do is just ask using the tools we provide. Remember, these goals benefit ALL swimmers.
