2023 Seattle Open Water Swim

Team Todaro

Thank you for visiting the “Team Todaro” page and my personal page.

In 2016, when I was beginning my cancer treatment at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA), my friend swam in Swim Across America in my honor. Having just started chemo, I came to watch, but I could not swim that year. I promised myself that, every year I am able, I will participate to raise money and show support for SCCA in this event.

In 2017, with a team of friends making up “Team Todaro,” I swam a mile to raise money for SCCA, the the incredible team that saved my life and planned my treatment so that I could continue to be an athlete.

I am honored that so many friends have joined “Team Todaro” the past few years. And I hope to have many of you join us again - either in the water in Seattle or virtually.  

This year I will be swimming on a different day, as the day of the event coincides with my nephew’s Bar Mitzvah. To make this event even more special, my nephew, Jacob Brill, as his Mitzvah Project will be joining Team Todaro and "hand-stand walk" his way to raise money for this cause. I am thrilled with him joining the team and honored he has chosen to participate as his Mitzvah project. 

I swim in honor of friends and family whose lives have been touched and impacted by cancer. And I continue to swim with the hope that those “watching from the shore” will get back in the water, as I could. 

Much love and gratitude.
