In our lifetime, 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer. We joined the SAA community so that, together, we can change that. We are challenging ourselves by swimming in the Sound to Cove Open Water Swim and raising as much money to fight cancer as we can. Please support us by sponsoring our swim and making a gift. The money you give will go towards cancer research, prevention and treatment and will make an impact in the fight to find a cure.
Last year we participated in a fundraiser for Swim Across America, a charity event that fundraises money toward cancer research and many cancer centers in the tristate area. Our team, TRI-ing to Beat Cancer, raised over $12,000! We had 17 participants from various age groups on our team. Not bad considering this was our first year participating in this event. We had three of our swimmers place in the top 10 in fundraising for the under 18 category: John Liu, David Poggioli, and Shannon Brewi.
This is our second year where we will participate as a team and I would love to get as many involved in this wonderful cause as possible.Thank you for your generosity and may it lead to a cancer-free world!
