Swim-a-Thon for the Swim Teams

By Emma O'Leary in Student News

On Friday, March 10th, both the men’s and women’s swim teams will be hosting a Swim-a-Thon at South Boulder Rec center immediately after school, from 3:45 to 5:45.

Swimmers from the men and women’s teams will be declaring to swim a certain number of laps and collecting pledges (donations) from various people. Some swimmers may be sponsored by the lap, while others pledged a flat rate for a certain amount of laps.

The swimmers will have one hour to swim as many laps as they can, and prizes will be awarded to the swimmer who swims the farthest and to the swimmer who gathers the most donations. Coaches from both teams will also be joining the competition.

There will be music, an MC at the event, and a fundraiser at Snarf’s on Table Mesa following the Swim-a-Thon. 20% of the proceeds from Snarf’s on March 10th from 6:00 to 9:00 will go to the teams.

Students are encouraged to attend and bring family and friends.
