Dear Dynoswimmers...

I would like to bring your attention to something that is very important. It’s important not just for the obvious reasons, but important because of its potential to change all the people that are directly and peripherally involved.

As many of you know, Dynoswim is working quite closely with Emily Nohner to help her achieve her goal to swim 9 miles open-water as part of a charity event for a young man who isn’t quite as lucky as most of us.

(Details can be found here): Emily's 9 Miler

What I’d like to point out to you is not so much that this is a charitable event for a noble cause, but more important, to point out your ability to make a difference in a person’s life. You see, many of us want to do what we can to support this cause whether that be with a donation of time, money, knowledge, or enthusiasm. But this initiative goes a little deeper than that.

The true gift here is proving how achievable it is for all of us to pursue the causes that are dear to us. To help each and every individual feel empowered to do something that will have an impact, and that will effectively change the world, even if it’s just one person’s world.

Making a difference starts with one good intention at a time, and like enthusiasm, it’s contagious. So, I ask you to please look inside yourself, find something you’re truly passionate about, and make a difference. Charity, for lack of a better term, comes in many shapes and sizes; and all charity is equally influential. Know that you do have the power to make a difference in a person’s life, and don’t take that responsibility lightly. Time moves ever so quickly and we all live our lives with regrets. But remember, you will never regret giving something of yourself, no matter how big (an endowment), no matter how small (a pat on the back), we’ll look back on this and feel that we accomplished something that matters.

Best Regards,

Dean O.
