Welcome to Steve's Personal Page
I'm GONNA SWIM 4 MILES FOR THIS!!!
On July 22, 2023 I will again take to the waters to swim to raise money for Swim Across America Nantucket. This year brings with it an exciting new beneficiary partner in Massachusetts General Cancer Center. While our support of the established local cancer care and support services provided by our longstanding beneficiaries Nantucket Cottage Hospital and Palliative and Supportive Care on Nantucket (PASCON) remains unwavering, this exciting new addition of MGCC brings with it the hope and promise of putting an end to cancer. With the advent of ground-breaking new therapies in recent years, we are living in a time where we can see some of the tangible benefits that are the result of tireless research and development of cancer-fighting and cancer-curing drugs and immunotherapies, A portion of the proceeds raised in this year’s swim will support important research and clinical trials at MGCC. And for many of our local and summer community members who are faced with the challenges of a cancer diagnosis some of those same therapies are available on-island at the Swim Across America Infusion Center at the Cottage Hospital. Swim Across America Nantucket brings together the vital components of Making Waves to Fight Cancer: fundraising for cancer care and support, and funding for research to bring this terrible disease to an end. Please JOIN ME in this fight.
Please support SAA/Nantucket & Team Roethke this year. Come to Jetties Beach on the morning of Saturday July 22 and be a part of the island's best feel-good event of the Summer. Come see first hand what time and working together can do for a community. JOIN US.
