Lap-A-Thon 2017!

Pretty nice huh?!  The Lap-A-Thon is being held Thursday, June 29.  Swimmers will participate in fundraising and swimming as many laps as possible for a determined amount of time per age group.   Our overall fundraising goal is $10,000!  The first main target will be to raise enough money to cover 5 new personalized, Ygnacio Wood canopies!  Our current canopies are on their last leg and these new canopies will provide many years of shade for our timers, starters and desk crew!

Please set up your swimmer’s personalized fundraising page by  visiting the “My Event Fundraising” page on Team Unify and click Fundraising Setup.  This will walk you through setting up your profile and sharing via e-mail and Facebook!

We are excited for this event and appreciate all of your support of Ygnacio Wood Swim Team!
