We Have Come a Million Miles
It was a joyful evening recently when Beckham, a child who has a love for the water, participated in his first swim meet on the Orca Swim Team at Oak Pointe Country Club in Brighton, Michigan. The staff came to know the family well as they frequented the pool often with Beckham and their older son, Chase, a former Orca swimmer and now an Assistant Coach.
Beckham completed the 25-meter free-stroke and the 25-meter back-stroke all by himself with his older brother at his side. His parents, thrilled and proud, sent a heartfelt message to the club, thanking all of the coaches by name and saying:
“We have come a million miles! And to all our friends....there were a lot of joyful tears! Go Orcas!"
This moment brought tears to all who know Beckham and his family and the staff was so proud to have been a part of the family’s touching Magic Moment. Kudos to Head Coach Mark Sweeso and Assistant Coaches Alex Geddis, Taylor Tuthill, Josh Whitson and Chase Nielson.
