It’s time for our biggest fundraiser of the year – Swim-a-thon!  Our swim-a-thon will take place on Wednesday, March 19 from 3:30 – 5:30 pm at Elevation Place. Targets are 50 lengths of the pool for novice and 200 for JO, JP & Provincials. Parents will be counting laps and we will have pizza, drinks and treats afterwards.

This year is different as it is the first year everything will be done online. Please go our Swim-a-thon website and register your swimmer. http://www.albertaswimathon.ca/rip. Follow the steps and create a profile. You can add goals and pictures if you wish. Parents can then send the link to their swimmer’s donor page to family and friends through email or social media.

There is no experience required for any of the positions and it is a very relaxed and laid back environment. There will be plenty of help and direction from the paid casino advisors.   Food and drinks are provided at the casino.
