Olympian Swimmer Camille Adams Needs Your Help for Houston

Cammile Adams represented the United States in the 200-meter butterfly event at the 2012 and 2016 Summer Olympics.  She was set to start her 6th grade teaching position when hurricane Harvey hit her hometown, Houston.  Her home in Houston was spared but many others were not.  “Obviously I wanted to do something to give back to all these families, and being in the swimming world, I thought, ‘How many swimmers have been displaced?’” Adams said.  “There’s a lot.”

So Camille, has organized a donation drive for swimmers.  Swimmers have lost all their swim gear and she wants to help them out by keeping their routines going.  Any unused equipment will then be sent to help out swim families in Florida.  For more information on the drive and two other fundraising events that Camille will be hosting, please read the article in Swimmer’s World.
