Giving new meaning to the word “TEAMWORK” the Dorset Dolphin Swim team of Marietta, Georgia took to their pool this past Saturday to take part in the Dolphin Dash–Swim for Hydrocephalus. Swimming as hard as they could for an hour and a half, over 30 young age-group swimmers, a few coaches, and even some amazing parents from this summer rec swim team, worked and swam together to raise $3,701 (and counting!) for hydrocephalus research!! In the process, this incredible group also raised much needed awareness about this life-threatening condition within their community.
Team Hydro could not be more proud of this amazing Team!
The Dolphin Swim Team, which competes in May and June every year, devoted a Saturday morning to this great event. During the Dash, the teammates (aged 4-18), learned more about hydrocephalus, swam hard, and even took time to make handmade cards for children hospitalized with the condition. The Dolphin Dash was led by Team Parent Anna Beck, who knows first hand the importance of raising awareness and research funds for research–Anna’s own daughter, is currently living with shunted hydrocephalus (and until, she broke her arm the week before the swim, had planned to participate in the Dash). The team’s passion for funding a cure for hydrocephalus was fueled by the fact that 2 swimmers on the team, as well as the nephew of one of the coaches, are all currently living with the condition.
