Swimmer of the Month

Judi Rich is our swimmer of the month! She participated in the January Jam and jammed in 100,000 yards this month. This swim is an annual event for Dynoswim. The funds raised are to support the Dave Parcells MS fund and St. Vincent's Medical Center Foundation. This swim is especially important to Judi as she swam all month to honor and remember her sister who passed away from multiple sclerosis. Judi moved to Greenville last summer with her husband and son. She loves Masters swimming and was thrilled to find Greenville Splash. Judi dove right in and has participated in workouts at every pool around town. Judi had a fantastic swim meet at the Charlotte meet and was a true team player. She has already volunteered many hours to help Greenville Splash grow by her fabulous use of creativity and graphics. She also started an Instagram page for us! Judi your swimming has inspired us all and brought awareness of MS. Greenville Splash loves you and your sister Cathy. Thank you for your dedication and support.
