Piper goes the extra mile!

On the 21st March, Piper Davies did a sponsored swim in aid Seaford Down’s Syndrome And Special Needs Support Group.

Piper swam 1 mile, which is 1609 meters, 64 lengths of Seahaven Pool!

For those of you that don’t know Piper she is just 6 years old,so it’s definitely going to be a challenge for her!

Piper, on her VMG page says :-

My name is Piper and I am 6 years old.

On Saturday 21st March 2015 at 3pm I will be doing a Sponsored Swim. My challenge is to swim 1 mile, which is 1609 meters or 64 lengths of Seahaven Pool. I can swim any stroke, on front or back but I cannot use any floatation aids.

Why am I doing it?

I am raising money for Seaford Down’s Syndrome and Special Needs Support Group.

My brother, Ethan (8), was born with a genetic abnormality (ARX Gene Mutation) which caused epilepsy, Global Developmental Delay and Autism. He is also unable to talk.

Seaford Down’s Syndrome and Special Needs Support Group have given Ethan and us as a family a lot of support. He’s learnt to swim through the lessons the group provide. Swimming is his most favourite thing in the world. They also offer Sensory Music and Drumming which help his development, coordination and can help him learn to talk. They also offer Speech and Language Therapy, Sensory Movement, Family Drop Ins and a Lending Library.

If you want to know more about the excellent work they do please look at their website www.seaford-dssnsg.co.uk

All the things they offer cost money, so, please, anything you can spare as even pennies can turn in to pounds.

Thank you

Piper xx
