Welcome to my page! :)
This is my 6th year participating in SAA, 4th time swimming the 5k at Lake Lanier, and 2nd year on the Junior Advisory Board.
1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lives, and every year, over 400,000 more kids are diagnosed with cancer worldwide and in the US, cancer is one of the leading causes of children’s deaths. And yet, childhood cancer receives less than 4% of federal funding dedicated to cancer research.
By donating, you’re helping fund 4 research projects focusing on leukemia (blood cancer) and osteosarcoma (bone cancer) that wouldn’t otherwise be possible at the Aflac Blood & Cancer Disorders Center at the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, one of the leading childhood cancer programs in the country. Thank you and may your generosity help lead to a cancer-free world!
You can make a credit card donation here, or send a check to Swim Across America, c/o Nancy Peek, PO Box 1078, Tucker, GA 30085. Checks should be made out to Swim Across America but please include a note mentioning my name (Lillian Tong) as the swimmer you are supporting!
