RiverKeeper – The Training Continues

This morning the boys swam a 1.5K in calm waters -- with a final sprint at the end captured beautifully in the photo gallery below. Orion also became the first 10 year old to ever touch the yellow buoy. Well done! Our next training session for the RiverKeeper is Saturday morning at 7:30. Anyone can attend. Also, anyone can donate to our team effort. All funds go towards making the Ottawa River cleaner and healthier - https://raceroster.com/events/2022/59495/riverkeeper-open-water-swimnage-en-eau-libre-garde-riviere/pledge/team/417950     Here are some inspirational shots.
