The Swim Clinic given by AquAbility Honorary Board Member Dara Torres at Boise State University was a fantastic event. Dara gave a lively talk covering her life as a swimmer through her Olympic experiences, interspersed with training methods, tips for overcoming anxiety in competition, nutrition, and dry land training. Following her talk, Dara coached the participants in the pool, working on specific drills for maximizing efficiency with body position, and pulling and kicking techniques. Clinic participants all found the clinic beneficial and fun. After the clinic, Dara joined with AquAbility participants for a photo opportunity.
Thank you, Dara, for helping raise money for AquAbility Programs!

The first fundraising event for AquAbility was a huge success!
130 people came out to support AquAbility at the Wild West Party held at the home of board member Don Oliphant and his wife Judy. It was a beautiful, warm evening. Everyone was decked out in their wild west duds. Down at the tepee, the children had supervised games, nature walks, archery, dinner and s’mores by the campfire. The adults enjoyed a delicious meal catered by Raspberries, and had fun bidding on silent auction items. Derek Agnew, general manager at Zenergy Health Club, was the animated auctioneer for the live auction items.
AquAbility director Karen Morrison wishes to thank all the volunteers and guests who have helped make this fundraiser a success. The funds raised will help us provide therapeutic swimming for the physically challenged and for wounded veterans in our programs throughout the year.
