Once again I will be swimming a half mile in the waters off Nantucket Island for Swim Across America. This will be the eight consecutive year for my participation in this event.
Many of you were very generous and supported my swim for this event in the past.....thank you...and please consider helping again. Swim Across America, Inc., [SAA] is dedicated to raising money and awareness for cancer research, prevention and treatment through swimming related events. With the help of hundreds of volunteers nationwide and past and current Olympians, SAA is helping find a cure for cancer through athleticism, community outreach and direct service.
Cancer touches all of us and like most of you I have lost family members and friends to this disease, and have family and friends who are living with cancer today. I swim in their honor and memory!
If you wish to sponsor my swim or donate to this worthy cause, please go to http://www.swimacrossamerica.org where you can search by swimmer ( Louis Gennaro) or the team I will be swimming for ( PASCON,) which stands for Palliative and Supportive Care of Nantucket Foundation, a non profit that provides hospice type care and counseling for individuals diagnosed with life threatening illnesses, as well as counseling to their family members.
Thank you for any consideration - no gift is too small. Lou
