Miguel who came straight from a Triathalon to warm down.
Gary Hatfield and Steve Cohen who haven’t swam since last year’s swimathon.
Trevor who was still getting cash donations at the pool on the day.
The husband team of Rav Natti and his wife Shiri competing against each other.
Rachel Cohen showing up her “guys”.
David Lenoff getting in the water early when we needed him.
Juleah who despite having other things to do, did a great job.
Rael who has found his new freestlye stroke as well as sharing the glory with his son Michael and friend Adam.
Debbie Katz who saw us swimming, gave us a donation and swam for us.
Last push from Gary, Steve and Rachel to get even more donations.
