In yet another amazing demonstration of commitment, generosity, and strength, The Dorset Dolphin Swim Team of Marietta, Georgia will once again enter the water and swim for two hours straight in order to raise funds and awareness for hydrocephalus research!! This year’s swim will take place on June 17th.
The Dorset Dolphins are a summer age-group Swim Team who have committed themselves not simply to becoming better swimmers, but to using their combined strength to help and serve others! Team Hydro could not be more proud of this inspiring group of kids (and their wonderful families, friends, and neighbors) which last year raised over $4000 for hydrocephalus research in their very first Dolphin Dash–Swim for Hydrocephalus!
The Dolphins know first hand about hydrocephalus because they Swim in special support of three wonderful young people who are living with shunted hydrocephalus–fellow swimmers, Lilly and Parker, and Charlie, the one year old nephew of their coach! Knowing these wonderful young swimmers, and witnessing the challenges they face first hand, makes the need for hydrocephalus research all the more urgent to this determined and caring group of swimmers!!
The Dolphins have chosen to Swim for Hydrocephalus because they are very aware that people with hydrocephalus face some extra challenges in life–including living with an incurable life-threatening condition, the uncertainty of knowing that the medical device they depend on could fail at any time, and the harsh reality that multiple emergency brain surgeries will likely become a part of life. But the Dolphins are also very aware that people with hydrocephalus are vibrant and fun human beings just like everyone else!
Team Hydro is so grateful to each and every Dolphin (as well as their on-land supporters) who are helping to ensure that one day, a CURE for hydrocephalus Will be found! We welcome each and every Dolphin to the Team Hydro Family!!
