Email from the President... GatorAid 5K & Fundraising!

Hi everyone,

It has been a long winter off, and I want to welcome everyone back and say hello to all of our newest team members and their families!  For new folks, I like to keep it short and sweet, and I would like to introduce you to Little Johnny, our example swimmer.  He's a nice, fictitious kid who serves us well as you will see below.

Each year, Little Johnny has a fundraising obligation to meet by the end of the summer.  This year each swimmer will need to raise $100.  You can do this in many ways...participate in the SCRIP program to buy gift cards to pay for things, sell sponsorships, buy raffle tickets for our end of the year raffle (TBD).  What is the EASIEST way Little Johnny can do this you ask?  Getting people to sign up for the GatorAid Cinco de Mayo 5K!!!!!!!!!  The cost is $25 until 4/15.  Everyone you sign up at $25 will take $25 off your fundraising obligation!  They can even walk!  Little Johnny may not be old enough to run/walk the 5K, but he certainly can do the Kids Fun Run for $15, which also is a credit.

Example: Little Johnny and his older brother (who doesn't swim-boo) have parents.  They all sign up to run or walk in the 5K, which is $100 credited to your fundraising account.  Little Johnny has taken care of it in 1 day before the season even begins.  Voila!  Hooray over-achieving Little Johnny!

Seriously folks, this is easy.  Sign up your friends, co-workers, dentists, vets, classmates to come run/walk with us through downtown Louisa on Thursday, May 5th at 6pm.  Each registrant gets a t-shirt and a free adult or non-alcoholic beverage to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.  The information and signup is here:

I have attached our flyer as well.  Please print it out and post it everywhere.  If you need color copies, please let me or Debra know.  And PS there is a huge discount for our service personnel and military, so hit them up as well.  The precinct or department with the most runners gets a prize ;)

Over and out,
Louisa Gators Swim Team,
