Our Sponsored Athlete Program
A Long Swim sponsors athletes participating in a variety of events including, open water swims, marathons, triathlons and Ironmans. Because of the individuality of each event, our program is custom-tailored to each Participant.
Each Participant will receive a custom, personalized fundraising site to facilitate online donations and reflect their own relationship with ALS and the A Long Swim organization. Fundraising will primarily be done using that website, social media, email marketing, and face-to-face solicitations.
