Swim-a-Thon™ is a fun and easy way to raise money for your team!
Participants earn money by swimming lengths of the swimming pool. Swimmers have a two-hour period in which to swim a maximum of 200 lengths. Swimmers get pledges from family, neighbors or businesses to support their efforts. Donors can either pledge a certain amount of money per length, or make a flat donation in support of your team.USA Swimming Foundation's Swim-a-Thon™ is the only official pledge-for-length swim program. Since 1998, Swim-a-Thons™ have generated more than $30 million for swim clubs and swim programs across the country.
