Calling all South Florida Mermaids and Mermen!
Mermaid Mile Swim Fiesta – Saturday May 19, 2018
Nicholas Dworet, 17, of Coral Springs, FL tragically passed away on February 14, 2018 in Parkland, Florida.
Nick was a captain of the swim team at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. He was a District and Regional Champion. He achieved 5th place in 4A State Championship in 100 freestyle. He had a college scholarship in hand with the University of Indianapolis and with aspirations to swim in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. He was ambitious and highly motivated, with a personality that would light up a room. Annika and Mitch would like to keep his dream of swimming alive by assisting other young swimmers with their aspirations. They also plan on being an advocate to stop gun violence. Annika and Mitch, along with their younger son Alexander, also a victim of the shooting and recovering at home have a long road ahead of them to recover from this tragedy. They are so thankful for the outpouring of support and donations during this time.
