Dear Friends and Family,
Thank you for sponsoring or joining me and the "Turn the Tide" team, which will take part in Swim Across America’s Summer 2017 Greenwich-Stamford Open Water Swim on Saturday, June 24, 2017. Please note that if you join the team, there is NO obligation for fundraising (please ignore the website $500 minimum). We would love to have you there to swim or just hang out with us.
The proceeds of the Greenwich-Stamford Open Water Swim will fund groundbreaking gene cancer research through its beneficiary, the Stamford-based Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy (ACGT). ACGT’s research grants are making a difference in the treatment of cancer patients today, including those with brain cancer, which is especially important to me because my Grandfather Mark died from brain cancer nearly four years ago.
You can either make a credit card donation right on the site, or you can send a check to Swim Across America, c/o Jacque Lang, 14 Little Ridge Road, Ridgefield, CT 06877. Check should be made out to Swim Across America but please include a note mentioning my name as the swimmer or Turn the Tide as the team you are supporting!
I am so excited to be doing this event as my Mitzah project and really appreciate your support!
