Swim-A-Thon

The 2017 4th Annual Marlins’ Swim-A-Thon!

Saturday, June 3th, 2017

Information for our 4th Annual Swim-A-Thon is imminent! Stay tuned here for updates and info—rest assured we’ll have even more prizes, games and fun than last year, along with movie tickets, Bookmans gift cards, and plenty of food coupons!

Round up your neighbors, friends & family for pledges, and help support your team & pool! The first three Swim-A-Thon events were instrumental in raising awareness and much needed funds for renovating our pool. This will be the first Swim-A-Thon in the new pool! We’re looking for repairs and upgrades to our pool house next, and the goal achieved with this pool shows us what we can do for the rest of our facility and community. Thank you!

In the meantime, a recap of our 2016 Swim-A-Thon:

Thank you to ALL our swimmers (and their families) who participated in our 3rd Annual Swim-a-thon. We crushed last year’s total. Together you raised over $7,000, had the largest turnout of swimmers ever, and showed our old pool some love! We had a great time and earned some HUGE bank towards renovating the pool this winter! We had 82 Marlins swimming a combined 72 miles—the most ever! 2,530 laps for a total of 126,500 yards! Most laps swam: 57, by several swimmers; average laps swam: 31, for an average 1500 yard workout—not bad for a lazy 100˚ Saturday morning!
Here are our top 2 fund raisers:

Daphne Milczarek $545
Mikaela Milczarek $545

Each will receive a $70 gift certificate at tonight’s meet and a collective “Holy Cow” about how much money those two kids raised. Amazing!!!

Honorable mention goes to the Edquid family, Alex, Brinley & Reagan, who brought in $560! Thank you!

Way to go Marlins!!!!

Thank you to Brice Menaugh for coordinating the event this year, and everyone who spent the day there making it happen. And a big thanks to our donor-sponsors: we are forever indebted to our sponsors for your support! Without your commitment and belief in our program and mission, we’d be awash!To our CT Marlins & Swim Community at large: Check out these invaluable supporters when you’re thinking of a meal on the town, a film to see, sporting goods or hardware—these business are the tops! The list is below. Swimmers: Now is the time to get those pledge envelopes stuffed & turned in! If you have donors who pledged per-lap, visit them and report your accomplishment! Return your pledge forms and completed envelopes to any practice, to a board member or coach. Once the final tally of donations have been calculated, the two highest grossing donors will win the top two prizes.

Only at CT do we have this kind of commitment. Thank you all!
