There were over 30 swimmers (ages 25-70) who participated in the Fall 2022 PEAKS Swim Challenge.  Below are comments from a few of the Fall PEAKS Swim Challenge swimmers on the impact participating has made in their lives:

“It was fun to “swim the peaks” and I feel such an accomplishment (swam 23,360 yards-13.35 miles), plus I had a great time!” – Alison

“This challenge helped me become a better swimmer (swam 36,750 yards-21 miles.) Coach Deb helped me improve my technique in the morning classes & I was able to improve my speed as well!  Overall, it was a positive experience, and I would do it again!” - Lezlie
