Team Hydro completed its final swim of the season, as our swimmers crossed the waters on the Hahbah on Sunday, September 9th. Some 25 swimmers successful made the crossing as several dozen additional Team Hydro volunteers helped shepherd the swimmers in kayaks.
Team Hydro members once again came from a very interesting range of backgrounds — including several full-time hydrocephalus researchers, a venture capitalist funding the development of a brand-new non-shunt surgical procedure to treat the condition, undergraduates and graduate students from throughout Boston, and professionals ranging from Philadelphia to California.
After getting acquainted and discussing the exciting work going on at Team Hydro, we hit the waters!
As always, a great time was had by all. In addition, quite a few hydro swimmers made their way onto the podium!
To all those who participated with Team Hydro this year, by land and by sea, thank you for another great season!
And, as always, don’t forget that the cause isn’t finished! Go to donate.teamhydro.org to support of efforts to find a cure for Hydrocephalus!
