2024 LIS - Long Island Sound Open Water Swim

Team Gina

Gina, along with all her siblings, spent the summers at the Larchmont Shore Club swimming. From morning practices in the bright sun or pouring rain, leading the team cheer before dual meets, Counties at Rye Playland, and Conferences at Westchester Country Club. Gina would go on to be an Assistant Coach for the New York Athletic Club. Her swimming career continued at Ursuline, leading her team to seven years of undefeated seasons. She would continue to swim at the College of the Holy Cross setting a record and being named the team’s Rookie of the Year. Gina’s enthusiasm and passion for swimming inspired and influenced her many teammates and the children she coached over the years.

Gina and her siblings participated in Swim Across America for many years together swimming in memory of their grandfathers, Charles Roeckell and Richard E. Mannix Sr., and uncle James Lynch.

We now continue this tradition in honor and memory of Gina and her legacy, as she lost her brief, but hard fought battle to breast cancer on February 26, 2024.

Donations in memory of Gina Mannix Wente, our sister, will be used to help the fight against cancer at local beneficiaries of Swim Across America - Long Island Sound.

Swim Across America hosts charity swims to raise money for innovative cancer research leading to breakthrough treatments and therapies.

Thank you for helping us #MakeWavesToFightCancer.
