Bring On The Bay, Ottawa ON 2016

Updated: Mar 3

I swam today, but it wasn't my swim - today I was a swim angel so someone else could accomplish their goal of finishing the "Bring on the Bay" 3km Ottawa River swim (me: bottom row, far right). This year 7 swim angels (pink caps) paired up with 7 swimmers looking for support (navy caps) in order to finish the race successfully and safely. Amongst our swimmers were athletes with visual impairment, spinal injury, chronic pain and anxiety about swimming open water. Kudos to "Bring on the Bay" and our fearless leader Jeff for this program and for promoting inclusivity. Everyone deserves the chance to feel a sense of accomplishment in their chosen sport...
