Ann Brown for Team Woodland Park
Most of you probably know me as a musician, but another big hobby of mine is swimming. After swimming competitively in college many years ago, it's been a joy to make to switch to swimming for charity instead. I swam in this event for Swim Across America in 2019 and am very excited to be able to do it again in 2022! My 2 mile swim will be on August 21st at Chatfield Reservoir outside of Denver. One of the things I appreciate most about SAA is that, although it is a national organization, each local event partners with a local hospital or research facility, where funds will be used. In our case, SAA Denver 2022 will fund 3 upcoming research projects at Children's Hospital Colorado. One of these happens to involve acute myeloid leukemia, which is the very same form of cancer that took the 14 yr. old son of my best friend from high school.
If you are able, please support me by making a gift. Without Swim Across America early stage funding, many trials that can lead to breakthroughs that save lives would not be possible. Thank you for helping make an impact in the fight to find a cure!
