Charles River Masters (CRM) has been a proud participant in the SAA Boston events for over 10 years. Each year we recruit swimmers, volunteers, friends and family to help out at the Pool Relay Challenge at Harvard and the Boston Harbor Swim. This year's dates are Sunday, April 28, 2019 (Pool Relay) and Friday, July 12, 2019 (Boston Harbor).
For this year's Pool Relay, we are swimming to honor our teammate, Wendy Gulley. A 20-year veteran of CRM (formerly Cambridge Masters), Wendy has been a consistent, friendly presence at noontime practices and local open water spots over the years. From Walden to the Charles, to the Harbor, Provincetown and beyond, Wendy shares her passion for swimming with everyone she meets. We love our teammate dearly, so when she learned of her cancer diagnosis last fall, it was immediately obvious that we would rally behind Wendy as CRM always does for its own.
We swim for Team Wendy because a group makes a bigger splash than as separate individuals. We swim to recognize the coaches, teammates, and other athletes who have made an impression on us throughout our years of training. We swim in memory of friends and family who lost their battle with cancer before the medical advances of today. We swim to honor today's "cancer survivors" and the belief that the world will be a better place with more of them.
We look forward to these SAA events each and every year and are honored to do our part to help make a difference.
