The Lawrence Aquahawks conducts two team fundraising events each year. Details of each event and the fundraising requirements are described below.
Wave the Wheat Meet: Each Silver, Gold, Platinum, Senior and National swimmer is required to raise a minimum of $250 during the Wave the Wheat fundraiser from advertising sales. This event occurs in July of each year. Any shortfall is billed in the next monthly billing. Each swimmer will be assigned businesses that they will contact and ask to purchase advertising for the Aquahawk Wave the Wheat Heat Sheet, Powerpoint Presentation or a Banner. This is the primary fundraiser for the club.
In lieu of participation, swimmers may opt out at the beginning of the year at a cost of $300, billed in 12 monthly installments (based on the approximate average sponsorship raised by swimmers who do participate). For families with 2 or more swimmers the fundraising minimum is $400.
The USA Swimming Swim-a-thon:Each swimmer in Silver, Gold, Platinum, Pre-National and National is required to raise $75.00 from pledges for swimming laps on a set date in the late fall. Any shortfall is billed in the next monthly billing.
