This was an amazing experience and awesome opportunity to meet such an energetic and amazing group who are doing the work. The discussions and networks being made are so crucial to saving lives and breaking the stereotypes that exist about aquatic sports. The love and passion you shared about helping our youth is inspiring. I am looking forward towards seeing the growth and progression of the next steps being taken. Thank you all for everything.
