The Great Big Swim With The Spirit Orcas
The Spirit Orcas are a group of six developmentally disabled athletes who challenge themselves by swimming in the open water. Between July 1st and August 16th, Susan Simmons, the Spirit Orcas, and Jasmine Kremer swam over 80 km from Brentwood Bay to Colwood Waterfront Park in British Columbia, Canada in order to raise funds for COVID-19 Relief.
Simmons reported, “Dubbed The Great Big Swim, this incredible group of athletes braved big waves, strong currents and waters as cool as 9°C – all for the love of their community. I continually in awe of these athletes. They have so many challenges in their day-to-day lives, and then to take on this – wow, just WOW.
