ST. CATHARINES, ON, Aug. 8, 2015 /CNW/ - Following in the footsteps of their team mate, Trinity Arsenault, and coach, Christine Arsenault, the West Park Aquatic Club (WPAC) will be attempting to achieve a World Record by swimming 70 KM or more in a 24 hour period.
Joined by Trinity Arsenault, these swimmers will break this record as they raise funds and awareness for Jumpstart. Jumpstart is more than just about getting kids active. It's about giving kids from families in financial need the same chance to participate as their neighbours, their classmates and their friends. Whether it's the chance to try a new sport or to continue with a favorite one, no child should be left out.
WPAC Swimmers have each trained over 400 hours this past year to complete this swim. That's over 3200 hours of training. Reaching for big goals and smashing limitations is what this team is all about.
