Sun-Down Swim-A-Thon 2012

On Tuesday, March 20 from 3:30 – 5:30 pm, we will host our Sun-Down Swim-A-Thon at the Canmore Recreation Centre.  There are a number of people who can help make our Swim-A-Thon successful.  Swimmers need to go out and get pledges but parents and friends can assist with the organizing of the event!  If they would like to swim, we can arrange that too!
We are the 2012 Swim-A-Thon Co-Chairs.  We would love your help to make this year our most successful fund raising event yet!  Please let us know if you can help on the day of the event or help our swimmers raise their goal amount and even surpass it! 
We need help with…
·         Corporate Donations
·         Publicity
·         Swim-A-Thon Day
We hope packages have made it home to everyone — if not let us know.  We’re sure you are all leaning on your family members, friends and neighbours for pledges. Remember there are prizes for the most pledges!!! 
There was a sense of panic when we thought we have less than 3 weeks to make our goal of $10,000 but then Jean (Neil’s Mom) shared a moment… she was sitting in the chair at her favourite haircutting place and mentioned our swim-a-thon.  Her hairdresser said she’d love to help support local kids programs and what could she do.  Jean wasn’t yet comfortable asking for money and asked about a prize for our swimmers.  Her hairdresser immediately said she’d put a basket together with all kinds of hair goodies and a hair cut… it’s worth over $100.  Wow!  One lucky swimmer that has been very successful with pledges will win this prize!!!
It is much easier than you think!  Have a look around. You may see an opportunity to ask for a pledge for your swimmer, a corporate pledge with recognition or a prize for our hardworking swimmers!  Please see what you are able to do to help make our 2012 Sun-Down Swim-A-Thon a success.  
Here is the Swimathon letter with more information.
If you have any questions, need more pledge forms, or anything else we can provide for you, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Thanks in advance for your support!!!
