Christine Chenet from Hait, a symbol of perseverance and proud winner of the 4 km swim in 2016, participated for second year in a row
This year’s swim took place on Sunday, February 19th, 2017. Same as last year, participants had the option of either a short or longer swim. The short swim consists of 1.5 km, swimming along the shore and finishing at Wahoo Bay. The second, a 10 km swim from the largest Ile des Arcadins to Wahoo Bay Beach Resort. All of the proceeds benefit a program that teaches Haitian children how to swim.
When asked by reporters about his contribution to the event, Dr. Badia replied, “I am here to support this great cause and one of my former patients, Christine Chenet, who will be swimming again this year.”
