September 28, 2019 will mark my 14th year supporting Swim Across America-SF Bay Area's fight against childhood cancer. First, as the coordinator of the kayak safety fleet, and for the past half a dozen years plus as Co-Director with three-time cancer survivor and inspirational Susan Helmrich, I have watched this charitable swim grow from a few swimmers raising a few thousand dollars to a swim where over 350 intrepid athletes stroke their way from Golden Gate Bridge to Yacht Harbor. To date, SAA-SF Bay Area has gifted over $4 Million to Children's Cancer Survivor and Research Programs at the UCSF Benioff Hospitals in Oakland and San Francisco. In 2018 alone we gifted $650,000 to these programs, and our goal is to gift more in 2019.
On the 28th of September, I will again be honored to lead the safety fleet and the swimmers safely in their 1.75 or .75 swims. I will also be the Captain of Team Purple Patch, a team of triathletes that raised more than $40,000 in 2018. Please support me, Team Purple Patch, and SAA-SF Bay by 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 cancer cure.
Thank you in advance for Making Waves to Fight Cancer.
