Swim Across America is a sponsored open-water swim to raise funds for cancer research. All money raised at this event stays local. That means ifyou would like to sponsor Tony, your donation will go to the Siteman Cancer Research Center in St. Louis.
This will be Tony's third year to join over 300 other swimmers in this important event, and he has an extra important reason to work hard and swim. On February 4 of this year, Tony's Opa, Carl Herkstroeter, passed away after a brief and fierce encounter with liver cancer. It is never fun to lose your grandpa, and this time the disease progressed very quickly and Opa was gone almost as soon as the cancer was identified--certainly before any of the family was prepared. Please consider even a small donation to Tony's swim and help him contribute to this important cause. You can click on the link provided to follow the instructions. Tony and his family thank you for your donations!
