Two years ago, my older brother, Austin Brotman, a member of the JSerra Catholic High School swim and water polo teams, dove into shallow water on a family vacation in Florida, resulting in the severing of Austin’s spinal cord, causing paralysis. After a long journey of recovery, Austin and I discovered the Swim with Mike foundation, which benefits injured scholar athletes who are pursuing a college career. As a sophomore at JSerra, as well as a member of the school’s aquatics’ teams, the school and I are collaborating to raise funds in support of the foundation’s scholarships. Please join us on Saturday, May 5th, from 12pm to 3pm, at JSerra Catholic High School in San Juan Capistrano for an in-pool fundraiser to raise awareness for the countless scholarship recipients, seeking excellence through education to reach their full potential. All funds raised will go directly to the Swim with Mike foundation.
