MAKING WAVES AGAINST CANCER
Dear Friends and Family,
Since joining Swim Across America-Nantucket nine years ago, our family has reached out to friends and business associates to seek their support for this important cause. Annually, our goal is to raise money specifically for cancer-related services at Nantucket Cottage Hospital. Since the first swim, we have raised over 2.5 million dollars towards this mission, a fact that makes us proud and grateful.
This past year, we were so gratified to witness the grand opening of the new "Swim Across America Infusion Center", designed and dedicated to providing cancer patients with state-of-the-art treatments right here on Nantucket.
Now, our mission continues!. On July 25th, TEAM ROETHKE will be there once again as swimmers, volunteers, and donors. As in the past, we will be joining over nearly 300 swimmers in the open water swim. Can we count on you once again to make a donation?
Donations can be made by check orcredit card, made payable to ”Swim Across America – Nantucket”. You can direct the donation to any one of the members of Team Roethke. No amount is too small – whatever you can do will be greatly appreciated. Simply click on the link here for instructions about how to donate online. If paying by check, please mail your check to Jill Roethke, event co-director, at 14 Bluebird Lane, Nantucket, MA 02554.
I hope I can count on your support – together, we can indeed continue to Make Waves Against Cancer!
Steve Roethke (senior)
