Lovett Swimming and Diving took part in the world-wide Hour of Power fund-raiser. The Hour of Power began at Carleton College as a way of honor swimmer Ted Mullin who died from sarcoma cancer. The event is a 60-minute sprint relay, recognizing Ted's "leave it all in the pool" mentality. This year over 6,300 athletes representing 149 different colleges, high schools, and club swim teams participated in the 14th annual Hour of Power relay for sarcoma research.
This was Lovett Swimming and Diving's 6th year participating in the fund-raiser after the event was brought to its attention by Lovett graduate and Carleton College swimmer Christian Edwards '10. Instead of raising money, the middle and upper school swim and dive teams donated new art supplies for children undergoing treatment at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. The art supplies collected were delivered to CHOA by the swimming and diving captains.
