On Sunday, Swim Ocean City’s founder, Corey Davis, donated Easter dinner to Diakonia, a local homeless shelter in West Ocean City. The residence of Diakonia enjoyed sliced ham, macaroni and cheese, green beans and rolls from the Minit Market in Ocean City.
“I have been so blessed with the support from local businesses over the years. I like to give back any chance I can.” said Davis.
Swim Ocean City is a local non-profit organization that raises funds for research and awareness of traumatic brain injuries and promotes the positive effects that sports have on the brain and body.
Every July, Swim Ocean City, hosts Ocean Games – a competitive open water 9-mile and 3-mile swim along the shoreline of Ocean City. The funds raised from this event support Johns Hopkins Brain and Stroke Rehabilitation Program and local charities and families. Since its debut in 2013, the Ocean Games has raised over $130,000 for the Johns Hopkins Program and local charities. Ocean Games is widely supported through grants and many local Ocean City businesses. For more information please visit www.oceangamesusa.org.
