Emerson at neighborhood summer swim team!
Emerson at neighborhood summer swim team!



Come Swim with Team Smasherson! 

Team Smasherson is in honor of Emerson Podojil who passed away from Glioblastoma at the end of 5th grade.  She fought for 10 hard months after she was diagnosed and was taken way too soon. Its been a painful four years.  We want to ensure we find a cure for cancer so no other kids, families and friends endure the pain we have.  

Come swim with us!  We will have a super fun team.  All ages and skill levels. You don't need to be a year round swimmer.  Recruit your friends to join our team too!  The more the merrier.  

All the money raised will go to CHOA's Aflac Center where Emerson's doctor conducts research on brain tumors.    

Founded in 1987, Swim Across America has hosted charity swims with one goal: to raise money for innovative cancer research that would lead to breakthrough treatments and therapies. Since then, Swim Across America has raised over $100M to fund the next generation of pioneers in oncology and cancer-support care. 

Thank you for helping me #MakeWavesToFightCancer.
