Olivia Ness Would Love Your Support

Posted by Parkwoods Hockey League on Jun 25 2013 at 10:13AM PDT

Olivia Ness is not only an accomplished hockey player going into her 8th year at Parkwoods, but she is a going to be doing a Swim for the Cure down the Severn River on July 20th from Swift Rapids to Big Chute. The distance is 13 km. It is a relay and the minimum she will swim is 5k. Right now she is training and wants to try to swim the entire 13k. Olivia is 12 years old, only 4’8" and about 70lbs! She is taking this very seriously and we are very proud of her. This is an open water swim on a busy waterway, not in the comfort of a pool. They start at 6am and finish between 12-1pm or longer, it is a huge commitment.

It’s for a great cause and we are hoping you will support Olivia and her swim. We appreciate any donation – it all helps!
