Two years ago I participated in my first Swim Across America event with a group of my student-athletes. I missed last year's swim due to moving, but I am back this year for the Coast to Coast Challenge. Don't worry, I plan on swimming a mile in Lake Champlain to close the challenge!
I will be swimming (and running, walking, hiking, etc.) in memory of our beloved friend and colleague Kate Winne. We lost Kate last week and although I only knew her for a short period of time, I have never been drawn to someone in the same way I was to Kate. Kate credited Swim Across America for funding the groundbreaking immunotherapy trial at Johns Hopkins which saved her life when they were out of conventional medical options.
I am honored to fundraise with Team Amazing Grace in memory of Grace Bunke. Grace's legacy and her family's faith are inspirational. Hope has no finish line. Thank you for considering a donation to support Aflac Cancer & Blood Disorders Center of Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.
