About our Annual Wave-A-Thon

In fall 2020, during our toughest year to date, we announced our newest fundraising initiative to our members called our Wave-A-Thon. The Wave-A-Thon is an event where all of our athletes and coaches swim as many Lengths as they can in a given amount of time, water polo style!

In 2020, Wave athletes and coaches swam over 166,050 meters and raised a record breaking amount of over $25,000! Our Wave-A-Thon has turned into the greatest fundraising event in club history! In 2021, our Wave family crushed our record and swam over 231,225 meters and raised close to $30,000! Wow!

Fundraising is an integral part of Capital Wave and helps our overall operating costs, coaching development, and future equipment purchases to name a few. The idea for the Wave-A-Thon grew out of the Covid-19 situation and will sure stay here for the years to come. The club needed a new and safe way to raise the funds we rely on, respecting all of the current health guidelines at the time.

We can’t wait to host our next Wave-A-Thon and if you are interested or know someone who is interested in sponsoring our event or our members, please reach out to our organizing team here: info@capitalwave.ca
