We are running a hybrid event; join in-person at the Maritime Museum of BC, or by Zoom link.

This month we welcome speaker Susan Simmons to Nautical Nights.

She will speak on: Possibilities: How I Went From Barely Walking to Swimming Across the Juan de Fuca Strait

"I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis over twenty years ago, I have chosen a lifestyle that manages the disease through physical fitness and diet. My number one form of exercise is swimming and my diet is vegan. Both minimize the stress on my body, making it possible for me to live an active life.

Swimming in the open water provides me with a special kind of freedom. Multiple Sclerosis is a cruel disease. While one of the best ways for me to manage it is to exercise, exercise is also one of the things that can cause me to over heat and potentially lead to damaging attacks. The open water keeps me cool where I am free to exercise.

I wholeheartedly believe everyone is worth the effort it takes to be healthy, and for those of us with disease our first line of defence should be a healthy and fit self."
