WHAT: Glastonbury swim team is hosting this event in honor of Coach Mark, who has Multiple Myeloma, a cancer that affects plasma cells, and can damage bones and the immune system, kidneys and red blood cell count. For Multiple Myeloma, there are a lot of new treatments coming out and possibly a cure in the near future.
Coach Mark has been part of this team for more than 15 years and has been a huge support and inspiration. He is incredibly supportive and has had a difficult time since his diagnosis. We all love him and are glad that he has been able to keep working with us. We would like to give back and raise money for cancer research to help people like him in the future.
