Ted Simpson Award Nominees
If any of you ever wondered whether you could make a change, accomplish something difficult, confront your own fears, make your dreams happen – look no further than Aart. Aart had a stroke, paralyzing his left side, February 2015 and that’s not keeping him on the couch. He swam in the 55+Games in August 2015 and in the Love to Swim EBSC meet in February. He swims freestyle and backstroke one armed. He is a huge inspiration to many.
More information to come.
