Here is a little bit about our team, Team Pierce Daddy, and why we come out each year to participate in this amazing event. This year the open water swim is on Sunday, 9/17 and the pool swim is on Saturday, 9/16.
Many of us know people in our lives that have been effected by cancer in some way. For many of the LBA swimmers, this event is close to our heart as we have been raising funds for SAA since the inaugural Baltimore open water swim in 2010. Our support has only grown over the years and we became a united force in honor of the beloved Coach Pierce. Since his battle with cancer, we have taken on the name Team Pierce Daddy which remembers his legacy and the legacy of all the other cancer victims who are fighting the battle of their lives.
At this point we are looking to build our team. To join team Pierce Daddy clink on the link below and follow the directions, please send this link to all your friends and family who may be interested in this swim fundraiser.
