Red Tide and Team New York Aquatics (TNYA) are two prominent New York City swim teams that jointly organize the One Hour Swim fundraising event to benefit local HIV organizations. ASC and Momentum were the beneficiaries of this year's event.
In the weeks leading up to the event, swim team members gather pledges from friends and family members. On the day of the event, each participant swims laps for one hour... without stopping! This year's participants executed this feat of endurance with the utmost grace.
Throughout the One Hour Swim, ASC staff members and volunteers were at the poolside, cheering the swimmers on and providing them with sports drinks, protein bars, and healthy snacks. ASC also had a volunteer professional masseuse on hand to provide rejuvenating body massages for the swimmers. As always, our profound appreciation and admiration goes out to all the One Hour Swim organizers, swimmers, and donors.
