This August 5th marks my 16th year with Swim Across America.
This is another huge milestone for our SAA work here on Long Island, and I am asking my friends to help me reach my goal of $10K !
Swim Across America Nassau/Suffolk Long Island has raised over $8.3M since we began our efforts here on Long Island.
As part of Team ”Our Answer to Cancer” we swim in Memory and Honor of so many friends affected by Cancer. This year I swim in honor of JoAnn DiMaso, a good friend, and Sister of my Team Co-Captain, Jim Sirignano. JoAnn is currently battling her 3rd fight with Cancer and is being treated by the good doctors and staff at MSK Cancer Center. Our prayers are with all of our friends and family members who battle, and all of the wonderful research scientists and care-givers we support that help DEFEAT CANCER.
I want folks to know that your donations are going to support some of the most dedicated and renowned beneficiaries in the world of cancer research, treatment and prevention. They include Memorial Sloan Kettering, Cold Spring Harbor Lab, The University of Texas MD Anderson Children’s Cancer Hospital (The Stacey Leondis Fellowship), and The Feinstein Institute at North Shore LIJ. The team at SAA Nassau/Suffolk Long Island is an all-volunteer team, dedicated to maximizing the direct donations to our beneficiaries. Since our start in 2002, over 82% of every dollar raised goes directly to the cause… That is truly world-class.
We are making a huge difference in the Fight against cancer, and I appreciate your consideration and any donation you feel appropriate. And please pass along to any friends who may want to help or join our swim.
