Penguins to Swim for Hydrocephalus in 2016!
That’s right! On July 14th of this year the Little Falls Swim Team of Bethesda, Maryland will take to the water to Swim for Hydrocephalus Research for an amazing 5th year in a row!
This phenomenal group of age-group swimmers, coaches (and parents) will generously put aside their individual and team goals on this day as they dedicate one whole practice to raising awareness and research funds in support of those currently living with hydrocephalus! The team also swims in of a former teammate who passed from complications of this devastating disease!
In addition to completing the Swim, and raising funds, throughout the summer, (under the guidance of parent coordinator Sarah Farnsworth), the Team will take part in all sort of activities designed to increase the Teams understanding of the condition and to spread awareness in the community and beyond. They will be: learning about hydrocephalus, hearing stories about and wearing bracelets in memory or honor of children and adults with the condition, making cards for patients in hospitals around the country, selling “hydrate for hydrocephalus” water bottles at meets, and generally spreading the word of the critical need for increased hydrocephalus research!
Team Hydro could not be more proud of this great group of swimmers, coaches and parents! We are honored to have Penguins in our Team Hydro family!!
We wish you great luck in your season, and in your efforts to support Hydrocephalus Research!
Go Team Hydro! Go Little Falls!
Together, let’s FUND a cure!
