Splish! Splash! 52 people, representing 15 families, played, chatted, and splashed their way around both pools at Rainier Beach Pool last weekend.
Fearless swimmers dove or jumped off the high dive board into the deep end. Others swam laps, or played Marco Polo. Thrill seekers zoomed down the water slide. Younger kids splashed in the beach zone, had fun with noodles, and played in the currents of the lazy river. There was also ample opportunity to take a break and relax in the hot tub with friends.
Each child with a visual impairment went home with a heart-shaped box of delicious Godiva chocolates, donated by a neighbor who had a surplus of chocolates from a corporate event.
A big thank you to Seattle Parks and Recreation for helping us to host this event.
The goal of my blog is to increase awareness of childhood glaucoma and other eye diseases, and to unite kids like me living with visual impairment.
