Hi friends and family! This year, I will be participating in Swim Across America's Coast to Coast Challenge! Typically, I swim an open water 5K at Lake Lanier for this event, but the ongiong situation surrounding Coronavirus makes this difficult. Instead, I will be logging hours and miles of exercise to add to Atlanta's challenge.
Swim Across America is a nonprofit organization that supports cancer research. All proceeds from this event will go to the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. This year, I am swimming in honor of Coach Lucie Bornholm, who lost her battle to lung cancer July 2017, and swimmer Grace Bunke, who passed away March 2018 after fighting an aggressive form of bone cancer.
Thank you in advance for supporting my swim and this amazing cause. This year, it's easier than ever for you to participate in the cause as well if you would like to join Team HIES! I'm looking forward to making waves to fight cancer!
