Club fund raising serves two important purposes. First, it provides revenue that would otherwise have to come from other sources, e.g. membership fees. Second, it gives club members a common goal and activities to build team spirit.
Swim-A-Thon 2012 was held in April. All raised money were spent for purchase of timing equipment, which will be used by ALL members of the club.
