Dear Friends and Family,
It is time to swim!!
What: Once again, I will join approx. 80 swimmers of all ages and ability levels - from recreational to Masters and former Olympians - to complete a 22-mile relay in the Boston Harbor and raise money for cancer research through SWIM ACROSS AMERICA.
When: Friday, July 13, 2018
Why: It seems cancer never takes a break. This year I am swimming in memory of my Uncle Joe and my cousin, his son, Skip. We are Singleton Strong. This year swimming with me in their memory will be my sister, Erin and my cousin, Christopher, Joe’s son and Skip’s brother. They were kind, caring, wonderful men and we miss them every day.
How: There are three easy ways to get involved:
1) Join my team and sign up to SWIM
2) Help at the event as a VOLUNTEER, or
3) Show your support for the cause and DONATE.
The funds raised through this event will benefit Massachusetts General Hospital for Children and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. They are two terrific beneficiaries and I'm thrilled to give back each and every year. As NIH and other government funds are harder and harder get, non-profits like Swim Across America are desperately needed to fill in the funding gaps. We need to and will find a cure.
Wish me luck and remember that every dollar counts...no gift is too small! I know that you get lots of these requests and already donate generously to many wonderful causes, so I am especially appreciative of any support you can offer. You can sponsor me via by making a credit card donation here or by mailing checks made payable to Swim Across America to me at 30 Bullard St. Walpole, MA 02081
Thank you in advance and have a great summer!
