On August 28, 2019, I am going to get back in the pool for a very important cause. Ms. Cathy Bennett is a close family friend (she taught me how to swim when I was a kid!) and is currently going through her second battle with cancer. We are raising funds to go towards cancer research, and will be granting the money raised to the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins. Ms. Cathy and her family mean so much to me, my family, the Foundation, and countless others in the swimming community and I wanted to honor her with this charity swim. Ms. Cathy has never been one to seek any kind of attention, but raising awareness with Swim Across America to benefit cancer research will hopefully help find a cure for all forms of cancer.
Swim Across America, 11600 N. Community House Rd., Suite 100, Charlotte, NC 28277.
Check should be made out to Swim Across America but please include a note mentioning my name as the swimmer you are supporting!
