Clarita (CJ) Seludo, (Ketchikan Indian Community, Alaska) pauses for a victory salute during her Oct. 8 swim from Alcatraz to San Francisco. Alison Saylor, a South End Rowing Club (SERC) support swimmer, cheers her on. Each Native swimmer was paired with a veteran SERC swimmer for the crossing and training swims. Seludo was among a group of Alaska, Washington and California Native Americans who participated in the 10th Annual PATHSTAR Alcatraz Swim Week (Sept. 30 to Oct. 8, 2012) in San Francisco and Bay Area locales. The swim week event is a component of a year-round program to inspire healthy nutrition and active lifestyles practices in tribal communities. Visit: http://www.pathstar.org
