Paving a Path Forward

The Dad’s Club Aquatic Center’s Annual Swim Marathon is a fall fundraiser where almost 500 Dad's Club swimmers of all ages and skill levels complete an endurance swim in honor of maintaining, restoring and refurbishing its physical assets.

This year’s Swim Marathon “Paving a Path Forward” will raise critical funds to repair, among other things, sidewalks and paver paths throughout the facility and to ultimately plan for widening and reconstructing the back driveway.

With ongoing maintenance and improvement, Dad’s Club will be able to pave a path forward and continue serving the community in the way it has for almost 75 years.

You can support the 2021 Swim Marathon, “Paving a Path Forward” in any number of ways:

Donations In Honor of a Swimmer

Support a swimmer as they complete an endurance swim to raise critical funds to maintain, restore and refurbish the facilities at the Dad’s Club Aquatic Center.

Each swimmer is obligated to raise at least the training team minimum:

  • White/Blue $150

  • Bronze/Silver/Gold/Senior/National Prep/National $200

Most Major Sponsorship and Facilities Sponsorship donations can be applied to a swimmer’s fundraising minimum. To fulfill the required obligation at this time without active fundraising, simply email Lindsey at lindsey.mueller@dadsclubaquatics.com and note “Please bill my account now for Swim Marathon 2021”.

After Monday, November 15, the credit card on file will be charged the difference between the required fundraising minimum and the donations the swimmer has received to date.
