Dear Family and Friends,
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
On Friday July 12th, 2019 at 6:30 pm, Team CST will be participating in the Swim Across America's Pool Swim at the New York Athletic Club in Pelham Manor, N.Y.
Cancer Support Team (CST) is one of the beneficiaries of Swim Across America Westchester. So the more people who participate on our team, the more money Swim Across America will raise. That in turn will help Cancer Support Team.
We use the funds you raise to provide nursing care, social work counseling, case management, and other cancer-related services to anyone with a cancer diagnosis who lives in Southern Westchester. Everything we do is provided at no cost and without regard to insurance coverage. The number of people calling CST is increasing. In 2018 CST served over 610 patients and their families with nearly 4,000 visits (in person or by phone) and 820 volunteer rides to/from chemo or radiation treatment .
Team CST is a group of staff members along with supportive family and friends who are participating in Swim Across America for the 10th year. We swim as a symbol of our commitment to our organization, and as a tribute to the patients and the families we serve.
We are seeking swimmers to join our Team. You don’t have to qualify for the Olympics, whether you swim one lap or a mile we would love to have you join us. If you have friends and/or family who would like to swim, please let us know.
To register as a swimmer, go online to http://www.swimacrossamerica.org/goto/TeamCST or call 914-777-2777 and we can give you more detailed information and answer any questions.
You may also donate on-line through our Team’s page using a credit card or you may write a check payable to “Swim Across America” and send it to SAA, P.O. Box 217, Larchmont, NY 10538. Kindly put “Team CST/Tania Weiss” in the memo section of your check.
If you cannot swim with us on July 12th and still want to join Team CST, you can swim at any of the other seven pools or the Long Island Sound Open Water on Saturday, July 27.
I thank you in advance for your help with this most worthwhile cause.
