Hello friends and family, I hope everyone is enjoying the summer thus far. Summer has always been my favorite time of year for all the obvious reasons. However, in recent years Swim Across America Nantucket has brought new meaning for me during this season. Training and swimming (1 mile!) in the Swim Across America has been a genuine and personal way for me to connect with my Mom. Many of you have received an email from me in the past years about this event, so I will not be repetitive (please visit our team page for more info). More importantly, I would like to thank everyone who has helped out over the years. Last year the donations to "Swimming for Moms" put our team in the top donor circle. I really couldn't beleive all of the support! This year we are back and we are hoping to go even bigger. Co-Captain (Pat McEvoy) and I have been thinking of ways to raise awareness and funds for this year's campaign. To kick things off, a very generous friend of ours, Sally Benedict King, has dontated limited edition art pieces inspired by Nantucket and this event. All proceeds will go directly to Swim Across America Nantucket. The initial release sold out instantly, but there will be another. Please let me know if you are interested - firstname.lastname@example.org. Finally, please join us on August 26th at Jetties Beach in the fight to support those who are fighting this awful disease.

In our lifetime, 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer. I joined the SAA community so that, together, we can change that. I am challenging myself by swimming in the Nantucket Island Swim and raising as much money to fight cancer as I can. Please support me by sponsoring my swim and 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 and may it lead to a cancer-free world!
