Mt. Lebanon Swim-A-Thon

Mount Lebanon Aqua Club Swim-A-Thon

Thank you to the over 50 swimmers and tons of supporters who came out to the Mt. Lebanon Aqua Club and High School Swim-A-Thon on September 20th to raise money for ALS research! It was a great day and we raised over $8,000!!! This exceeded our $5,000 fundraising goal by a significant amount. We thank each and every one of our donors who made this possible.
The Swim-A-Thon was a ton of fun for everyone that participated and to organize. It was a huge success and we even got to dump ice water on our swim coach. We hope to do another one next year and raise even more money. Thanks to everyone who made this event possible. Without all of our supporters, the event would not have run as smoothly as it did. We are so happy to have had the opportunity to put on this wonderful event.

The Mt. Lebanon Aqua Club, a swim team in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, will be hosting their first for charity Swim-A-Thon to benefit Ann Arbor Active Against ALS to raise money for ALS research. The Swim-A-Thon will take place at the Mt. Lebanon High School indoor pool and will be from 2pm-9pm.

We chose Active Against ALS to donate the funds to because of the relationship Hannah and her family have with Bob Schoeni and his family. Bob was Hannah’s soccer, baseball, field hockey and basketball coach when she attended Burns Park Elementary through 3rd grade. Hannah and Emma always talked about doing a Swim-A-Thon at some point and finally this year were able to get started on it. We are very excited about it and can’t wait to support such a great cause.

We have set a fundraising goal of $5,000 dollars. Our swim club has approximately 200 swimmers and we are hoping to get between 100-150 swimmers to participate. We of course would love to raise more than that and are certainly hoping to!
