The Zombies Swim Team is given presidential award

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Some local kids received a special award. The Zombies Swim Team from Arch Academy got a nod from the president on Tuesday. 

14 students successfully swam the English Channel last June, enduring cold water and months of training to do it. 

On Tuesday, everyone on the team was given a Presidential Active Lifestyle Award presented by Congressman Scott Peters and signed by President Obama. 

Many of these special needs kids have overcome serious challenges to reach their goal. 

The team completed the crossing in 13 hours.
