Dear Family and frineds,
With great sadness I am informing you that, given the approach of Hurocane Dorian this weekend to Rhode Island, the SAA-Rhode Isalnd cahrity swim has been cancelled. Our Coast Guard, Harbor Master and Beach Patrol water safety experts expect that 4-to-6 foot swells and rip currents caused by the Hurricane will be making Roger Wheeler Beach unsafe this weekend.
Unfortunately the event cannot be rescheduled because necessary water safety and risk management support is not available.
Although Mother Nature washed out this year’s Rhode Island event, I appreciate all your support in this fund raiser and I hope you can join me next year again as we contrinue making waves to fight cancer. All proceeds will continue to support cancer research programs at our local beneficiary Women & Infants Hospital.
Thank you again for your support,
