For quite a few years now, Swim Across America has been an important part of my husband Jeff's life. Through this organization and their annual Boston Harbor swim, Jeff has found connection with a community of swimmers while supporting the vital work being done locally to fight a disease that has touched virtually everyone: cancer. This year the event and fundraising (as with so many other aspects of our lives) have both been impacted by COVID-19, and so SAA has had to alter course. Rather than an open water swim for really good swimmers, the 2020 effort will be a compilation of different kinds of actitivies by folks of varying abilities...including this (essentially) 50 year old. My miles will be on land, some combo of running and dog-walking.
If you are able, please support me by making a gift. The researchers we are funding are in our community and are the next generation of cancer pioneers. Without Swim Across America early stage funding, they are not able to conduct trials that can lead to breakthroughs that can save lives. Thank you for helping make an impact in the fight to find a cure!
