Get Active- Kimberly

with Kimberly Vandenberg

Kimberly Vandenberg, Olympic bronze medalist, writer, swim teacher and motivational speaker is getting active for education. Kimberly has set a personal fundraising goal of US$15,000 to support 50 girls to complete secondary school and develop key life skills through Room to Read’s Girls’ Education Program. 

“My swimming career has taught me self-discipline, perseverance, goal-setting, teamwork, and so many other important life lessons that I have learned throughout my Olympic journey," said Vandenberg. "Room to Read is equipping a generation of young women with these life skills so that they too can become champions in their own lives and their own communities.”
