Team McKendree-Jimmy Tierney
Hi Friends! Here we are going into year 4 and we are pumped even more so than ever! I am so thrilled and humbled to be a part of such a wonderful and special event in Swim Across America! The people involved from organizers, to participants, to the doctors at the Siteman Cancer Center are incredibly special people who have incredibly huge hearts. I cannot think of a more worthy cause to jump in and try to help make a difference in the lives of so many. Last year's event was so wonderfully inspirational and motivating.
2020 has been a very different and somewhat challenging year for us all. But we know for sure that cancer has not taken a break. So, we are still coming after you! Check out our fun virtual Coast to Coast event!
My team and I have started Team McKendree and would love to have you either join us our team in our virtual event this year. You don't have to be a swimmer! Any exercise activity or volunteer work will help us go across the US!
More that 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with canceer in their lifetime. Chances are that you or a family member have already been affected by this horrible disease.
My Mom was well known in Louisville, Ky for her passion for swimming, and for doing her mile swim almost daily as she raised a family of 8 children. Even after the cancer was detected and surgery performed, she still tried to get to the pool as often as possible despite being extremely weak. She lost her battle to cancer at way too young of an age in 1980. I am working passionately with SAA to honor her, and for all of those family and friends who have lost love ones as well.
Please help me make an impact in the fight to find a cure by making tax free contribution to support my team. Thank you for your generosity and may it help lead to a cancer-free world!
