Here I am again, doing the San Francisco Bay Swim Across America swim!
This year I am swimming with my daughter Kate Marie. Kate has a good friend, also a junior at Davis, who was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and is undergoing treatment. We are both on my coach Dana Kirk's team. This is my 7th year with SAA and Kate's second.
By funding local cancer research and treatment programs, Swim Across America is making a real contribution to the fight against cancer.
You should also know that our beneficiary agreement requires 100% of SAA grants be applied to approved projects and not other items such as overhead and buildings.
I hope you will consider making a donation to this year's swim. As always, all funds raised go directly to UC Benioff Childrens Hospitals (Oakland and San Francisco). In fact, there is a Swim Across America lab in Oakland!
You can make a credit card donation here, or send a check to Swim Across America, 1684 8th Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94122.
