Team Hydro is a group dedicated to raising awareness of and finding a cure for the life threatening condition known as hydrocephalus.  Swimmers ranging in ages from 12-62 have graced our rosters, swimming in the Alcatraz Sharkfest for six years and in 2012 participating in the Potomac River Sharkfest, too.

This year Team Hydro is tackling the Pacific Ocean & the Boston Harbor by participating in the San Francisco & Boston Sharkfest events.


To date, Team Hydro's efforts have increased awareness and contributed over $350,000 to hydrocephalus research.  

We are looking forward to HA's Team Hydro members participating in the traditional Alcatraz Sharkfest in San Francisco and the Boston Sharkfest. Please help us further the cause by donating today!!

Team Hydro was founded in 2007 by brothers Peter and Sam Finlayson, inspired by the courage, strength and sweetness of their sister Kate, who passed away from complications related to her hydrocephalus on November 27, 2010. Though Kate lived in chronic pain associated with her hydrocephalus and underwent over 100 brain surgeries in attempts to treat her condition, she remained nothing but kind and brave. Kate will forever be an example of all that is good and a source of inspiration to all who knew her. Your time, funds, and love will help advance research toward a cure for hydrocephalus. Thank you for your support!


The Hydrocephalus Association is pleased to offer Team Hydro members HA branded merchandise in return for their dedication and support. Help spread awareness of HA and its mission. When you raise $250 or more you qualify for some great prizes which also help spread the word!
