We participate for the third time at Swimathon București with the project SENSart – an event which brings the community together though swimming and has the purpose to fundraise for different local projects.
This year we are raising funds for children with deafblindness from 9 special schools from Bucharest and other cities in order to organize art therapy workshops for them, in 2 editions – in June, with the occasion of Helen Keller celebration and in December, on the International Day of People with Disabilities.
The art therapy workshops will include paintings, sculptures, decorations and many other forms of art. Children will have the occasion to express themselves through art, to develop their communication skills with their colleagues and teachers. Additionally, this is an occasion for the large public to increase their awareness regarding deafblindness.
In order to make possible all these activities, we need besides us passionate, determined and caring people! By participation to the event Swimathon you will have the chance to be beside all these children, to get to know them, to understand their needs and to support them!
If you know to swim and you want to make a change for these children, there are some reasons to participate at Swimathon Bucuresti to support the children from the 9 special schools all around the country:

We are looking for 2 more motivated teams to enjoy with us the Swimathon experience!
