Christine, Gr. 11, Hosts Swim-a-Thon for Cystic Fibrosis

On February 25th, one of our fabulous Junior Swim Team student coaches Christine (Gr. 11), hosted a Swim-a-thon in support for Cystic Fibrosis.

Prior to the event, we met with an inspiring woman who has beaten the odds and lived a productive and healthy life despite her early diagnosis of CF. Read her story here. Many of our swim team girls swam in her honour; all of us had her story (and those of others living with CF) in our minds as we swam.

This fun event wrapped up the Junior Swim Team’s amazing season. In total the team swam 18900 m, which is 756 lengths of St. George’s 25m pool! This is roughly the distance one would swim between Kitsilano beach and Sandy Cove, West Vancouver and back!

Through her hard work and dedication to the team, Christine modelled our school motto Not for Ourselves Alone.
