A Special Request...

I need your help in spreading the word on the global swim event "Swim for Your Heart..Feb 14".  On that day, swimmers throughout the world will join in thought and action to bring an awareness of heart disease and prevention. It's easy! Go for a swim on February 14 and ask family, friends, and co-workers to donate to your local Heart Association, or local hospital cardiac unit, or local rescue unit.  Please notify swim organizations, swim clubs, YMCA's, fitness clubs and your local pool director.  Water aerobics, water polo players, synchronize swimmers are welcomed to join us as we raise awareness together on heart disease and prevention.  If you plan to participate, please notify me at  patgallant.charette@gmail.com  .  Thank you.
