Hello everyone! My name is Braelyn Binkowski and I will be swimming in Chicago this year for Swim Across America for team RUSH. As you all know, my passion is swimming, but I am also passionate about helping others. Swim Across America allows me to do both! This is my second year participating in Swim Across America and my goal is to beat what I fundraised last year ($4,000). I will be swimming 3 miles (twice as long as last year!) in Lake Michigan on August 8th to help raise money for cancer research. I don't know a person whose life, in some way, hasn't been affected by cancer. This disease is so prevalent today, but, fortunately, we have the best and most advanced doctors working to help cancer patients, one of them being my aunt, Dr. Marta Batus at RUSH Medical Center. But, these doctors and researchers need funding for their groundbreaking research; this is where people like YOU can help.
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 (Braelyn Binkowski) as the swimmer you are supporting!
If you wish to have me swim in honor or in memory of someone, please email me (at email@example.com) their name and I will swim with their name written on my back.
