The Converse Swim team have been out in the community the past two weekends lending a hand and giving back to the community.
The Valkyries helped out with the Spartanburg Water 28th Annual Lake Sweep Clean-Up. The team picked up over 4,500 pounds of trash and debris from the lake.
Along with the Lake Sweep Clean-Up, the Valkyries helped at the "One Small Step" for Prader-Willis Syndrome 5K run at USC Upstate. The event was hosted by the Gregg and Spearman families to help fight PWS.
PWS is a genetic disorder caused by deletion of a part of chromosome 15. PWS can cause obesity, intellectual disability and shortness in height.
