We like to focus most of our posts on our students and the ups and downs of their culinary training,
|Nicole during pool training. She loves food, but it is her passion |
for the open water that drives her.
Our fearless administrator, Nicole Mallette, is a multi-tasking, multi-talented woman with a heart of gold and an unbeatable talent for organizing. It comes as a surprise to many people, then, that her first passion is not fine food: it is competitive, long-distance swimming and her unstoppable drive to challenge herself on the open water.
This summer, Nicole and four other women – all of them long-distance swimmers – will challenge Lake Ontario in a relay swim from Kingston to Burlington to raise money for their favorite cause; Plan International’s “Because I Am A Girl” campaign.
This inspiring team, swimming under the 'Because Girls Can' banner, hopes to raise $300,000 in donations to support education and opportunity for girls around the world. In pursuit of that dream, they will set a world record with their 305 km. marathon. Their determination is compelling, and their cause is life-changing. We hope you will help us to cheer them on.
To find out more about the swimmers and their cause, follow their progress on their blogs, Facebook page and website.
