Our 23rd Annual
Swim-a-thon & BBQ was spectacular!
Sunshine, great company, good food, a terrific raffle, fun prizes, and lots of splashing in Santa Catalina School’s beautiful pool were just a few of the highlights of our SPLASH Swim-a-thon on Sunday, October 5th.
Watch for photos on our Facebook page: Kernes Adaptive Aquatics. We’ll post them as they come in.
