Janet Martin lived in Shreveport, LA, and was a swim/endurance coach there. It is rumored and joked that she taught everyone in Shreveport how to swim. True or not, she impacted more lives than you can begin to imagine just by sharing her love for life, fitness, and swimming.
The level of patience she demonstrated with new swimmers (have never swum before) was second to none and the support she gave to the endurance community was nothing short of amazing.
There are so many more things she did in her life to positively impact others that we cannot list them all. So we created the ONWARD scholarship to give to athletes the way Janet did for all of her life. Janet left us far too soon after her second battle with cancer on Aug. 28, 2016. Janet’s legacy will live on with each person we reach and help!
We loved Janet like she was family and she left a lasting impression on us. As she would say, Always ONWARD.
