#GivingTuesday

Black Friday is over and so is Cyber Monday. Now it’s #GivingTuesday! A day of giving that is powered by social media.

Next year I’ll be swimming from Catalina Island to the mainland of California. I want this swim to be about more than swimming. I want it to bring awareness and to help something bigger. I’ve teamed up with Sports for Exceptional Athletes, a non profit local to San Diego, and I’ll be raising money for their aquatics programs. The money raised will help fund scholarships for individuals who can’t afford to participate otherwise. “SPORTS for Exceptional Athletes (S4EA) is a community based sports program serving athletes with developmental disabilities ages 5 through adult in San Diego County.  The purpose of SPORTS for Exceptional Athletes is to create enhanced opportunities for people with and without disabilities to interact and form lasting bonds of friendship through shared sports and recreational activities in their community.”
