Dear Friends and Family,
Cancer touches everyone - and during these crazy times, cancer doesn't go into quarantine.
In our lifetime,1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer.
Melissa and Kristina joined the Swim Across America community over 10 years ago so that we can help fund breakthrough cancer research and clinical trials to change these alarming statistics.
This year, Swim Across America could not hold their usual open water swim event due to COVID restrictions. So, each participant is asked to do their own personal challenge by the end of July.
Kristina's personal challenge is 30 hours of Pelaton workouts in 30 days.
Melissa's personal challenge is to join up with long-time friend, and past NYC marathon partner, Lindsay Stafford to walk a marathon distance of 26.2 miles. You're welcome to join us along the way for some exercise, 'chit-chat' or to just cheer us on for a great cause.
These personal challenges don't compare to the daily challenges of those fighting cancer, but with each step, we will be honoring our dear friend Bonnie Bancroft who we lost to pancreatic cancer this year, our beloved Grandmary and Poppy, and the many other friends and family who have battled cancer.
If you are able, please support us by making a gift. No amount is too small.
Thank you for helping to make an impact in the fight to find a cure!
With appreciation, Melissa and Kristina
