Non-Ambulatory Swim Team Wraps Up
The Misericordia Non-Ambulatory Swim Team recently completed its swim training. Every Thursday night for four months, team participants came from Holbrook, McAuley, McGowan and Rosemary/Connelly Homes to swim along with volunteers and staff in the Moore Aquatic Center. Most individuals used the backstroke, but some also swam freestyle or practiced walking in the water. The swimmers worked on building their endurance in order to swim at least 26 laps (that is 600 yards!) on the last evening of the program. All participants accomplished this goal and received a t-shirt from Nike and a swimming medal. Congratulations swimmers!
