Tim says his passion for helping others is something he was given upon the arrival of this world. Ever since he could remember, his desire to inspire, need to succeed, and love from above for all people has just been second nature. Growing up poor, it was rare and far between that he as a kid had an opportunity or a place to where he could acquire certain skills such as swimming. Other than the occasional dip during a friend's party at the pool or a relaxing day at the lake, he never had the knowledge or ability to swim. Tim’s true passion and desire to swim, along with sharing that knowledge with others, came about during the 5th grade after a tragic incident involving one of his classmates. The devastation put for a fire into Tim to become a proficient swimmer and to help others try and avoid a similar situation. To hear more of Tim’s story and to watch yourself or a loved one develop a life skill that they will carry on for their entire life, go ahead and book your adventure now!
