Welcome NORAC Parents to Swim-A-Thon 2019-2020!

On behalf of the board and coaching staff we are excited to announce our NORAC Swim-A-Thon campaign for this year!

Our club, once again, will be fundraising using Swim Canada’s online fundraising program. This allows us to raise money quickly and easily all from just a few clicks from our computers.

All of us will now be able to reach out to family, colleagues, friends, and utilize the tools of social networks in Canada and throughout the world to increase our “Swim-A-Thon” dollars raised this year. In fact, if you have ever participated in a national charity event you will know that raising valuable funds for special causes is made easier through tools like RaiseAThon.

Our club this year has a goal to raise $10,000 and we will put this money towards keeping our fees low! NORAC has one of the lowest club fees in the GTA. We would like to continue this, and keep our fees as low as possible, by using the proceeds from Swim-A-Thon. Our club directly receives 90% of the funds raised so let’s work to meet and exceed our goal.

With everyone’s support, we can CRUSH this goal!

Our Swim-A-Thon will involve all swimmers and it will be held on March 26th at our pool, Jack Burger.
