Once again, we’re still here and ready to do it again.
While Team Mackey has had a change in its roster, we are still a strong team that is motivated by our inspiration, Bill (who is approaching his sixth year of being cancer free) as well as the SAA itself - celebrating its 30th year in existence and 25th anniversary of the Long Island Sound swim in Larchmont.
As for Team Mackey, we continue to be inspired by the tenacity of the researchers who are making tangible progress in finding cures for cancer and the courageousness of those and their families afflicted by this disease. Equally, we remain humbled by the knowledge that ones loved dearly will pass before specific cures for their affliction may be found.
As it has been since Team Mackey was created in 2014, we are thankful for the good health to be able to swim in this event, to be associated with the multitude of dedicated and caring people who make this event a joyous and productive day and that Bill Mackey (and many other cancer survivors) will be able to be with us as we all remember our good fortune.
Swim Across America, Inc., [SAA] is dedicated to raising money and awareness for cancer research, prevention and treatment through swimming- related events. With the help of hundreds of volunteers nationwide and past and current Olympians, SAA is helping find a cure for cancer through athleticism, community outreach and direct service.
