WHAT: Three years ago, we started this swim in honor of a beloved coach who was fighting Multiple Myeloma, Mark Kinne. On February 11, 2019 Coach Mark lost his battle with the disease. He fought a valiant fight and was a presence on the pool deck until the end. We invite every one who would like to honor Coach Mark’s memory to come out and swim. You can swim as long as you are able. Multiple Myeloma is a cancer that affects plasma cells, and can damage bones and the immune system, kidneys and the red cell count. Coach Mark was an irreplaceable part of this team for over ten years, dedicating his energy and sharing his love of the sport to making children be the best they could be. He was an inspiration to both the young athletes he coached and the coaches around him. Even in his absence his legacy and impact lives on. Our Goal is to honor Coach Mark, his family and all who have been affected by cancer and to raise money for research so that we can swim for a cure.
We encourage anyone who would like to honor Mark’s memory to swim.
