How to Form a Tribute Team
Swim Across America encourages the formation
of Tribute Teams to swim in the ‘Memory’ of family or friends that have
lost their battle with Cancer, and to ‘Honor’ those loved ones that
courageously continue their battle with this terrible disease. Tribute
Teams are central to what Swim Across America is all about, friends and family joining together to "Make Waves to Fight Cancer".
Why Should You Form a Team?
- What better way to celebrate the life of a friend, family member
or co-worker that is battling cancer or has succumbed to cancer than to
join together and swim in their name?
- Teammates will motivate
each other to reach out to family and friends to donate to the cause and
increase the team's fundraising power.
- It is more fun to swim with a group friends and colleagues!
employees will rally around your team's fundraising efforts, especially
if the team swims in the name of a current or former employee.
- Your company may support your fundraising efforts with a financial grant.
your company has a matching gift program, all donations from co-workers
will be matched, significantly increasing the impact of your
How It Works
Each team selects a team captain who will register for the swim and then, during the process, "Create a New Team."
Team members will then register for the event and, during the
process, "Join a Team." All money raised by team members is credited to
the team account.
Top Fundraising Teams for the Seattle event will receive recognition at the post-event celebration.
There are no added costs to enter a team. Each team member must raise
$300 by event day in order to participate in the swim. The money
raised can be donated online or mailed to the address below. DO NOT MAIL
CASH. Be sure to indicate on the checks either the team name or the
individual that is to receive fundraising credit for the donated amount.
