Making Waves to Fight Cancer 2021
I hope this finds you and your family safe and well. As Board Chair of Swim Across America I have spent many hours over the past months making sure we keep our mission alive to maintain the vital cancer research we support. We just completed our 12th swim of 2021 and we are so excited for our Atlanta swim on October 2nd. I am looking forward to swimming along side Vicki Bunke and being a part of Team Amazing Grace to honor this special family. Cancer doesn't stop and we are doing all we can to keep our events going to raise life saving funds and provide hope.
I swim each year to honor and remember my friends who have battled and are battling cancer and to honor their loving families. Each year I pray to not know any new friends that have been diagnosed with this terrible disease, but unfortunately this is never the case. This year I am swimming to honor my Mom, Aunt Susie, my very brave friend, Van and his family, Simon, Rick and in memory of my dear friend and swimming buddy, Eddie.
I joined the SAA community so that, together, we can change the future for these dear friends and many more. 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!
