BENNINGTON — The Bennington Marauders will be holding an official Swim-a-Thon on June 10, 2023 at the Bennington Recreation Center.

During this Swim-a-Thon, swimmers will have a two-hour period in which to swim a maximum of 200 lengths. Donors are encouraged to support our athletes by pledging to support their efforts-either via a flat donation, or by pledging a certain amount of money per length that the swimmer completes.

The Swim-a-Thon will provide funds to enable the Marauders to buy new equipment, provide scholarships for swimmers, cover meet costs, fund athlete travel, etc.

Swim-a-Thon™ is the only pledge-for-length swimming program recognized by the USA Swimming Foundation. Since 2008, Swim-a-Thons have generated more than $72 million for swim clubs and swim programs across the country.

Persons interested in sponsoring a swimmer should contact Nicole Goswami at benningtonmarauders@gmail.com or visit the club's Swim-A-Thon page.
