EVENT DATE: Dec 17, 2012
Chris Engstrom, who coached for Omni two years ago, has recently been diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease). Chris was a great coach; he was always encouraging, had a great sense of humor and was always very helpful to the swimmers. He was so committed, sometimes he would even jump into the pool when we needed him to demonstrate a stroke. At meets, Omni swimmers would stand in line to have him draw funny cartoons on our swim caps.
We've decided that since Chris was our coach, we should help him out by raising money with a swimathon. We hope all swimmers can participate!
