#TeamHERO athletes encompass everything it means to be a true HERO. They are athletes on the field, scholars in the classroom, and volunteers in their community. Each month we celebrate a local athlete who demonstrates these attributes.

Landon is a talented swimmer in the Palo Alto Stanford Aquatics (PASA) Club.  We were fortunate to meet Landon and his older brother Jackson at a local swim meet and immediately wanted to share their story. Enjoy part 1 of 2 featuring the Picard brothers!
