Supporting a Great Cause: Swimmers are Readers, too!

Using my talents to raise funds for a great cause! 100% of profits on this book charm (ordered before May 30th) will support the 2015 Team Eugene Aquatics Swim-A-Thon.

What is a Swim-A-Thon?

A Swim-a-thon is a fundraiser used by year-round swim teams all over the United States to raise money for their respective club. To raise money for a Swim-a-Thon, swimmers receive pledges and donations from family members, friends, neighbors, and local businesses (me in this case!).

This year the team is raising money to go toward greatly needed new timing equipment (over $20,000) as well as a 25% increase in pool dues. In addition, a small percentage of the funds received will go to support the following:

- TEAM Eugene has a scholarship fund that allows children to swim year around in a sport that their families cannot afford on their own. Many teams do not have a scholarship fund.

- A portion of the funds donated by you go to supporting the US National and US Olympic Team.

Thank you for your support. Go TEAM Eugene!

Price: $10 each, and that includes shipping throughout the US only. And, you have your choice between a necklace charm OR a keychain charm.
