My wife Martha Ries was a proud SLU Law School graduate and her dad, Andy Ries, was also a proud SLU undergrad and Law School alumnus. Both Martha and Andy gave much to St Louis University and St Louis was their home that they loved very much. Team SLU Billikins remembers and honors them as they were a part of a great academic and social community of St Louis. Both Andy and Martha died from cancer. Join us to fight this disease and help erradicate it. The research we support in St Louis is making important progress. 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer. We joined the SAA community so that, together, we can change that. We are challenging ourselves by swimming in the St. Louis Open Water Swim and raising as much money to fight cancer as we can. Please support us by sponsoring our 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!
