Posted in Sales & Events with tags , , , , , , on April 25, 2017 by Lowcountry Boil

Lowcountry Autism Foundation is hosting a screening of SWIM TEAM, an award-winning feature documentary about a New Jersey YMCA-based, community swim team made up of kids on the autism spectrum. The film follows three of team’s star athletes, boys on the cusp of adulthood, when government services become scarce. The film will be screened on Wednesday, April 26th at Seacoast Church located at 750 Long Point Road in Mt. Pleasant. The screening is free and open to the public. Tickets are available here.

SWIM TEAM is a portrait of diverse American families grappling with the problem of “aging out.” Over the course of a year, SWIM TEAM explores the overwhelming struggles they face and the triumphs they achieve as they strive for independence, inclusion and a life that feels winning. Directed by award-winning filmmaker Lara Stolman, SWIM TEAM offers an inspiring look at the power of community.

The Lowcountry Autism Foundation strives to improve the lives of families living with autism and other developmental disabilities. They provide clinical diagnostic assessments and programs to support families throughout the lifespan. With a mostly volunteer, multidisciplinary staff, the Lowcountry Autism Foundation has provided over half a million dollars in free autism services, and all funds raised stay in South Carolina.
