The very first Swim & Fin benefit for the Special Olympics Maui Swim Team at the Kihei Aquatics Center will be held on Saturday, April 26. This public community event welcomes swimmers of all ages.
"It's a great way to train, exercise, show your support for your community and just have fun!" said Professional Swimming Coach Marie White. "Whether you swim rec-reationally, are on a school or private team, we want you to join us!"
"This year is extra special, as we are recognizing our honorary chairpersons, Nikilani Rojas and Fae Torres," said Special Olympics Maui Regional Director Adrienne Laurion.
