This weekend SwimLabs, Encinitas, hosted a fundraiser for Rosebowl Aquatics head coach Jeff Julian with 5 time Olympic Gold Medalist Aaron Peirsol. The event was held in conjunction with the Art of Swimming photography show with our chief photographer Mike Lewis and acclaimed sport photographer Donald Miralle.  Miralle and Lewis are donating a proceeds from their show to TeamJeff to support coach Jeff Julian in his battle against cancer and SwimLabs Encinitas was eager to help in supporting the Julian family.

Peirsol, who came down from his home in Newport Beach for the weekend’s show, generously donated his time to teach local swimmers in the state of the art SwimLab facilities.  The afternoon’s event began with Peirsol’s unique ability to inspire swimmers to reach their personal potential.  Here’s some images from the today’s event.
