2020 marks my 10th season with Swim Across America and while my return to Ohio Street Beach for a second SAA Chicago will have to wait until we can gather and swim safely, The Mission Doesn't Stop! We will be making waves to fight cancer through the SAA Coast to Coast Challenge.
I am especially inspired and motivated to virtually swim and walk my way across America for donations that support early-stage cancer research and clincial trials at the Swim Across America Lab at Rush University Medical Center. Lung cancer is one of the cancer types they focus on. Loretta’s Gills is a tribute team in memory of my Mom who died of lung cancer.
Why. I Swim. To honor. To support. To give others hope. To help cancer patients on their journey to become cancer survivors. To raise money to fund the research and clinical trials desperately needed to advance the standard of care for cancer therapies.
No amount is too small to help researchers get new treatment options to the patients whose lives depend on them.
You can make a credit card donation by clicking on my personal page's DONATE NOW link to the right, or by sending a check to: Swim Across America - Chicago, 47 Polk Street, Suite 100-561, Chicago, IL 60605. (Checks should be made out to Swim Across America but please include a note mentioning my name as the swimmer you are supporting.)
Thank you for your generous support and encouragement.
Together we are Making Waves to Fight Cancer!
