The clock is started. We are excited for this year's BIG team fundraiser and hope to raise a ton of money for Duchenne muscular dystrophy. As a non-profit organization, the monthly dues that we charge our families are only part of the money required to cover all of the operational costs our team see each year.
So each year we run a USA Swimming approved fundraising event called a Swim-A-Thon that brings all of our kids together for a two hour swimming event where they swim as many laps as possible in order to raise money. This year a portion will go to Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy for young boys with Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
This family fun event and our athletes fundraising participation will help raise money from friends and family that is critical to financial helping our team.
