Sunrise to Host Third Annual Autism Swims Event
Boys and girls age 5 to 18 with autism are invited to participate in Autism Swims – a free event that promotes swimming and water safety. The third annual Autism Swims will be held on Saturday, April 23, from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at the Sunrise Civic Center Aquatic Complex (10610 West Oakland Park Boulevard).
Children of all swimming abilities are welcome. Autism Swims pairs City of Sunrise lifeguards and youth volunteers with autism buddies to enjoy pool games and contests. The event will also feature educational information from local agencies and experts, including the Autism Society of Broward, Florida Health, Broward 2-1-1, and the University of Miami / Nova Southeastern University Center for Autism. Participants will receive an event t-shirt.
Autism Swims was created in 2014 at the suggestion of Diego Avellaneda – a member of the Sunrise Swimming Club. Diego, then age 13, proposed the idea to the Sunrise City Commission after witnessing firsthand the benefits of swimming enjoyed by a teammate with autism. The event received the Commission’s unanimous support, and continues to grow each year.
For more information about Autism Swims or to register to participate, please contact Nicole Leno at email@example.com
