Swimming for Diabetes for Nearly Two Decades


On January 29, 2017, Mrs. Jeanne Braun celebrated her 92nd birthday. She is a spirited individual who at the wonderful age of 92 continues to do great things including assisting others through her annual one-mile swim (which took place in May) which raised over $2700 for the Central Ohio Diabetes Association. 

The former Spanish teacher recently celebrated her 30th year participating in her own personal Swim for Diabetes. 

 “I had a sister, two nephews and a niece who had severe diabetes. My primary love is swimming. So I thought it was great, that I had something I loved and could do to support something like people with diabetes. That’s how I got started,” Braun remarked.  We encourage you to consider making a donation towards her effort as a way to recognize Jeanne's commitment to doing things for others despite being 92 years young!
