Roy Allan Burch, Olympian to kick off 5th Annual Jump In & Swim Program, March 25th

Come hear the inspirational story of Roy Burch, a tale of childhood dreams, aspirations, celebrity, disappointment, hope and courage. 

Roy was a celebrity in Bermuda. In the pool, he was the fastest. But against the world’s best, Bermuda’s greatest swimmer was outmatched. In 2011, like many other international athletes, he moved to Charlotte, train in the United States with an elite swim club. In 2015, he began to see the dividends of his hard work and was on-track to represent Bermuda in his third Olympics.  His intense training regimen and competitive spirit had propelled him to improve to an elite level. Then one day before swim practice, he decided to dunk a basketball, something he had done hundreds of times before. He went up for the dunk, his legs buckled and everything changed.

To meet and hear the story of Roy Burch pre-register in person at the White Plains Rec & Parks, 85 Gedney Way, or call (914) 422-1336 (seating is limited).
