WE CAN swim for diabetes

This is very important to me. My grandmother had diabetes and her favorite activity was the swimming in the pool because it took away all the limitation from other activities.

Come join the Carson City Aquatic Facility and WE CAN (Way’s to Enhance Children’s Activity and Nutrition) to raise money for diabetes causes. Bring the entire family out to swim or just come on down and support the cause and mingle with friends. There will be refreshments, a fun raffle and giveaways.
