Dear Friends & Family,
Welcome to my 2017 Sound to the Cove Swim Across America Home Page. This is the 6th year I am swimming 1/2 mile in the Long Island Sound in order to raise money that will go directly to Cancer research & treatment priorities. The Sound to the Cove annual Swim Across America event has raised over $7.6M since its inception and Swim Across America collectively has raised over $70M the past decade to fund cancer research and clinical trials at world-renowned hospitals Memorial Sloan-Kettering, Johns Hopkins, Moffitt Cancer Center, Chicago Rush, Children's Hospital of Atlanta, Mass General Hospital for Children, Dana Farber, Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy, UC San Francisco Children's Hospital, UC Children's Hospital Oakland and Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. We are really Making Waves to Fight Cancer!
This year, I will be swimming in memory of my Uncle, John Licari, and my sister-in-law, Dorothy Mulzoff. John lost his battle with Glioblastoma, a very aggressive brain cancer/tumor, in December of 2013. John was an inspiration to me and also my fishing buddy...so is greatly missed. Dorothy lost her battle with breast cancer in April of 2008 at the young age of 49. Dorothy was taken from us too early and is also greatly missed.
The two very important people mentioned above are the reasons why I Swim and will continue to swim until a cure to Cancer is found. I am asking you to please make a secure online donation to my swim, of which, 100% of your donation will go directly to Cancer Research and Treatment Priorities in the quest to find a Cure to Cancer.
Alternatively, you can send a donation to the following address:
