2017 Dolphin Dash Fundraiser

2017 Dolphin Dash Fundraiser

June 6, 2017

What is the Dolphin Dash?

The Dolphin Dash will be our largest Fundraiser of the summer. PledgeStar has agreed to waive all PledgeStar fees to allow us to raise as much money as possible. Participants earn money by swimming lengths of the swimming pool. All groups will attend their regular practice time to participate. Blue Group and Senior swimmers will swim a maximum of 100 lengths. Red Group and White Group swimmers will swim a maximum of 50 lengths. Swimmers get pledges from family, friends, neighbors or businesses to support their efforts. Donors can either pledge a certain amount of money per length, or make a flat donation in support of our team.

Why are we raising money?

In 2014 we raised enough money to purchase the timing system that was debuted at the Intersquad meet. We have added the automated scoreboard with 2015 donations. 2016 we purchased all new commercial canopies for swim meets. In addition to the scoreboard and canopies we also raise funds so that we can continue to keep our membership rates significantly below that charged by other neighborhood swim teams. The money that is raised also goes to the purchase of new equipment for the team such as kickboards, pull buoys, timing clocks etc.

What is the Goal?

This year the Dolphins would like to raise $12,000. If every swimmer can raise $100 we can swim past our goal! If we reach our goal as a team and raise $12,000 the coaches will race in the parent relay in the last home meet of the season!

How do I get Pledges?

Ask friends and family! Register your child at www.pledgestar.com/DolphinDash and follow the simple registration steps. It takes just minutes to set-up your child’s own Dolphin Dash page to request pledges or use the form on the front of the pledge envelope(more forms are available online). When you request pledges from least 10 people online you will receive 5 Dolphin Dollars to be used after swim practice at the Dolphin Store.
