Swimmer grateful for support

To the Editor:  

On Wednesday, Aug. 28, an article appeared in The Union Democrat detailing my English Channel swim. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity given to recount my experience. 

The community was a crucial part of my endeavor, and I would like to take this time to thank everyone involved. To my family, my coaches, my support crew comprised of Brent and Sheri Anderson, my fundraising team, the donors, the Tuolumne County Aquatics and Tuolumne County Aquatics Masters programs, and everyone else who provided words of encouragement throughout this experience: Thank you! I could never have done this without your help and I appreciate your involvement more than you know. I wholeheartedly believe that it wasn’t just my accomplishment, but our accomplishment, and for that, I will be forever grateful.
