Prince William Gifted Students in Action

Nine young swimmers came together and hit the water at the Woodbridge Aquatics Center to raise over one thousand dollars for the local chapter of the Alzheimers Association! Olivia McCarthy and her friend Lilly Nelson are both 7th graders at Parkside Middle School. Olivia and Lilly came up with the idea for a social action project they were working on in their gifted education class. They did some research and learned "Alzheimers is one of the least funded diseases". The young women decided they wanted to raise money for Alzheimers and asked SwimKids to host a swim-a-thon.  All participants were given purple ALZ bracelets and Olivia's Mom, Suzette beamed, "even though it was a small event for its first time, I think they did well and everyone had a great time !" We are proud of everyone who participated and congratulate Olivia and Lilly for all their hard work.
