Ruta will be holding a Charity Swim Event this coming Sunday (22nd), in her home country of Lithuania. The Olympic Champion understands that a strong family is essential to growth and development, and with this exciting initiative, aims to promote swimming as the best sport for all, regardless of age or physical capacity.
In what we hope will be the first of many, Sunday will be a fun filled family event, which will see three generations (including herself, brothers, father and grandma) swim a relay, with all proceeds going towards swim courses for children who are perhaps without parents or facing difficult times.
Ruta understands how important it is to follow your dreams, and we love her even more for organizing such a wonderful and important event. Good luck to all the families, especially those up against Ruta!
