A new program at the Mildred Avenue Community Center aims to get kids with asthma swimming.
Sponsored by the Boston Children’s Hospital, the free program will run from October 19 to December 21 and includes both asthma education and swimming lessons. The goal of the program is to improve the health of the area’s young residents and have a little fun at the same time.
Participants must be between the ages of eight and 13 and have asthma.
Those interested must also register for the program, which will be held every Saturday from 12 pm. to 3:30 p.m.
