Presidio Community YMCA Swim-A-Thon

The Presidio YMCA Swim-A-Thon is an annual fundraising event held by the Y's Pacific Aquatic Club (YPAC) competitive swim team. Swimmers from YPAC's swim team swim laps uninterrupted for one hour. All funds are raised by the swimmers and support the Presidio Y’s youth development and healthy living programming.  

Support our YMCA Presidio's YPAC Swim Team for our annual fundraiser. YPACers strap on their goggles and give it their all for one hour to raise money and spirit for our team! The Swim-A-Thon is one of only two fundraisers held annually to raise funds for YPAC, the YMCA Pacific Aquatic Club.  But it’s more than just a fundraiser.  The Swim-a-thon is a team-building event that every single swimmer, regardless of age or skill level, can participate in.

Participants earn money for their team by getting sponsors and swimming as many laps as they can during a 1-hour time period. As sponsors have a choice of pledging a certain amount of money per lap, or making a flat donation.  For instance, if your neighbor pledges $1 a lap, and you complete 60 laps, that’s $60.00! All checks should be made out to Presidio YMCA, and the donation is 100% tax-deductible.  All donors will receive a “thank you” note from the Y that they can use for tax purposes. 

Please help make the 17th annual YPAC Swim-A-Thon a success by supporting your swimmer today for their swim on March 7th.

“My son came to YPAC in the fall of 2015. What we found was a warm and caring team with great coaches who made practice fun while working hard. He couldn’t wait to be in the pool every day. As he continues with the team, the respect for his coaches and teammates continues to grow. Being part of the YPAC community has benefitted our family in numerous ways and he has made some amazing friendships as he navigates his teen years.” - Swim Team Parent
