One of Nebraska’s own, Bethany Koubsky, has been scheduled to be the interpreter for Mickie Poole, a Deaf woman swimmer who has attempted to swim the 12 mile Anacapa Island channel and is going to try it again to hopefully meet her goal. Deaf Services Unlimited is sponsoring her swim and asked neRID to help get the word out.
You can find out more (and help) by visiting Mickie’s GoFundMe website at http://www.gofundme.com/SwimmingInSilence
Given Bethany’s goal to do the Ironman Triathalon, she’d probably be swimming right next to Mickie if she could swim and interpret at the same time. Or can she already? Hmmmmmmm…….
