66 for Coach Ed

Happy Birthday Ed Steinnagel

I've been coaching with Ed for almost 20 years on the Laurel East Hartford YMCA swim team... Ed has learned my coaching style and I have learned his :). Ed has raised probably over $10,000 for the team through ...his dumpster diving efforts to collect bottles and cans for the National Team. He has his OCD style with the backstroke flags and the Lane lines, but we all make it work and are team is strong because of him. Ed Steinnagel truly is the backbone of LEHY... Thank you so much for your efforts Ed and enjoy your special day.
Today is for you ED, 66, with some IM work because we at LEHY like to develop the all round Individual Medley swimmer.
Oh, and because it is Christmas Eve, the #'s are for the 12 days of Christmas. Have a merry practice.

Swimming for Homes for the Brave

After spending the past 20 years paddling from Dover to France, it is time to venture into new waters, while helping some special people.
Soon, I will be traveling with my A-team to Scotland to swim the length of the famous Loch Ness.
As always, I try to help a Foundation raise funds and awareness and I thank you for interest and support.
I am deeply troubled with the thought of homeless individuals, especially in our US Veteran population.

That is why I am teaming up with our Connecticut-based “Homes for the Brave”. Can you imagine not having a place to call home?

Here is more information about Homes for the Brave! -Facebook pages –

I will always be dedicating my swimming to all those battling cancer and in the memory of 4 special people in my life. Cancer first hit my family when I was young. My grand-aunt Eleanor Kersavage, passed away with uterine cancer and my Auntie Bea Halchak battled with brain cancer.

On January 1, 2002, our LEHY family lost Nikki Giampolo to bone cancer, just turning 16 years old. Her spirit still lives on in our East Hartford swim team.

In July of 2009, my brother-in-law, Gregory Allen Urban, who passed away, after a valient battle with lung cancer. I can see him now, talking about cars and projects around the house, music and his family.

I know Aunties, Eleanor and Bea, Nikki, Greg and all the angels will help me CUT through all this water this summer.

The St. Vincent's Medical Center Foundation, based in Bridgeport, CT provides financial support for the needs that Health insurance companies don't cover, in addition to providing affordable cancer screening, wigs, medication and other things to make life easier for those suffering with cancer and their families.

Please make a donation, and thank you.
