USA Swimming National Team members Charlie Houchin (Raleigh, N.C.) and Chloe Sutton (Mission Viejo, Calif.) will visit Duke Children’s Hospital & Health Center (Durham, N.C.) on Wednesday, Nov. 13 from 2-4 p.m. ET. Houchin and Sutton will talk about their experience in the sport, sign autographs and pose for pictures with the children and their families.
Their visit is in conjunction with the Jessie Rees Foundation whose mission is to ensure every child fighting cancer has the resources and support to Never Ever Give Up!
“The opportunity to do a hospital visit with The Jessie Rees Foundation is so special,” Sutton said. “It's an extremely humbling and rewarding experience to be able to bring joy to a courageous kid who is battling cancer and to remind them to Never Ever Give Up.”
Houchin and Sutton’s appearance at Duke Children’s Hospital & Health Center is part of USA Swimming’s Athlete Partnership Program. The program is a platform for National Team swimmer to encourage kids and adults to take up the sport as a healthy and positive activity.
