Once again, we’re still here and ready to do it again.
While Team Mackey has had a change/reduction in its roster, we are still a strong team that is motivated by our inspiration, Bill (who is approaching his seventh year of being cancer free) as well as the SAA itself - celebrating its 32nd year in existence and 27th anniversary of the Long Island Sound swim in Larchmont. Weather was perfect for lasty year's event and we are hoping for a repeat this year.
As for Team Mackey, we continue to be inspired by the tenacity of the researchers who are making tangible progress in finding cures for cancer and the courageousness of those and their families afflicted by this disease. Equally, we remain humbled by the knowledge that ones loved dearly will pass before specific cures for their affliction may be found.
So please help us again Make Waves to Fight Cancer!
