Long Island Sound Open Water Swim

Team Chris + Marshall

This year, our team's 12th consecutive, we swim for two fighters, Chris Nevin and Marshall Nielson. Sadly, we just lost Chris to an 18 year battle. A husband, father, and great friend, he lived his life and fought each day to the end. Marhsall is battling lymphoma as we train. These stories hit home. These people are close to us, and, for that reason, we train and we will swim together on 7/30. Along the way we will raise some money doing our part to help combat this horrible disease.

We are challenging ourselves by swimming the Long Island Sound Open Water Swim and raising as much money to fight cancer as we can. Please either join our team or support us by sponsoring Team Chris + Marshall by making a gift. The money you give will go towards cancer research, prevention and treatment and will make an impact in the fight to find a cure.

Thank you for your generosity
