As many of you know, since 2007, I (19), and my siblings, Olivia (17) and Will (12), have been involved with Swim Across America. SAA is a non-profit organization which helps raise money for cancer research, treatment and prevention through swim related events. In 2007, the three of us completed our first SAA swim by sharing the total required laps to make a mile. Over the last ten years, we have all swam the 1 mile individually.
In 2010, we formed TEAM HOPE in order to involve our friends and family in a cause that we care so much about. TEAM HOPE honors our maternal grandmother, Joyce Wilson, a breast cancer survivor, and memorializes Tod Parrot, our close friends' grandfather who passed away in December 2011. This year on July 15th, Olivia, Will and our parents, Michael and Courtney, along with other members of TEAM HOPE will each swim a mile at Westchester Country Club in Rye for SAA.
See you in the pool!
Lauren, Olivia and William Monahan
