Swim Marathon 2020
It’s the 30th anniversary of the swim marathon!
The 2024 swim marathon will take place January 26 - 29
Dive into the excitement of the 2024 Flying Fish swim marathon! For nearly three decades, the swimmers of the YWCA Flying Fish have embraced the challenge of swimming nonstop for an hour (30 minutes for Greenfish). It's not just a test of physical endurance; it's also a journey of personal growth and maturity.
Join our swimmers on their aquatic adventure as they not only push their swimming limits but also make a splash for a great cause. It’s not just swimming; it’s swimming with purpose!
By being part of the marathon, you're not just making waves in the pool; you're making a difference in our community. We're not just seeking your support; we're inviting you to be a part of something extraordinary.
Where does the money go? Funds raised from the marathon support all aspects of YWCA Evanston/North Shore’s work. This includes:
-Providing healthy aquatic programming for all;
-Offering scholarships/financial aid to those who otherwise would not be able to afford swim lessons or swim team;
-Supporting families who access the YWCA’s domestic violence services, economic advancement and other social justice programs;
-Bringing violence prevention and racial equity programs to schools and other local organizations.
Here's how you can dive in:
- Support a swimmer directly by contributing to their fundraising goal.
- If you’re a swimmer, you can create your own fundraising page and earn Flying Fish swag as you reach fundraising milestones.
- Don't keep the excitement to yourself! Share on social media, via email or any way you choose. Rally your friends and family to amplify your impact.
Thank you for being part of the 30th annual swim marathon, where every stroke and every dollar propels us toward a better, more just community.
