This August 3rd marks my 18th year with Swim Across America. This is another huge milestone for our SAA work here on Long Island, and I am asking my friends to help me reach my goal of $10K !
Swim Across America Nassau/Suffolk has raised over $9.4M since we began our efforts here on Long Island, and we hope to cross the $10M mark this year !
As part of Team ”Our Answer to Cancer”, we swim in Memory and Honor of so many friends affected by Cancer. This year I swim in Honor of my Father-in-law, Anthony Cavalcante, and in Memory of 2 great friends JoAnn DiMaso and Skip Mitton who lost their battles this past year. Our prayers are with all of our friends and family members who battle this devastating disease, the brilliant research scientists helping DEFEAT CANCER, and all the compassionate caregivers that support those continuing to fight.
I want folks to know that your donations are going to support some of the most dedicated and renowned beneficiaries in the world of cancer research, treatment and prevention. They include Memorial Sloan Kettering, Cold Spring Harbor Lab, The University of Texas MD Anderson Children’s Cancer Hospital (The Stacey Leondis Fellowship), The Feinstein Institute at North Shore LIJ, and SHARE Cancer Support. The team at SAA Nassau/Suffolk Long Island is an all-volunteer team, dedicated to maximizing the direct donations to our beneficiaries. Since our start in 2002, over 81% of every dollar raised goes directly to the cause… That is truly world-class.
We are making a huge difference in the Fight against cancer, and I appreciate your consideration and any donation you feel appropriate. And please pass along to any friends who may want to help or join our swim.
