#1 Goal: Fundraising for St. Vincent’s Medical Center Foundation, I hope you can help me reach my goal.
The SWIM Across the Sound is a charitable, grass roots organization run by the St. Vincent's Medical Center Foundation. The SWIM helps provide cancer education, screening and prevention programs at low or no cost for the elderly and under-served. The SWIM helps individual cancer patients on a case-by-case basis with specific needs, such as the funding of wigs and prostheses, medication assistance, free transportation to treatments and appointments, day-care scholarships and support groups. This assists patients, families and the communities of Connecticut deal with the burdens of battling Cancer.
My Swimming Goals for the 2013 summer are:
1. Catalina Island to the California Coast: My friend, Scott Lautman (a cancer survivor), and I plan on crossing the 20.1 mile San Pedro Channel. We will start at midnight, Tuesday, June 25, 2013 and hope to finish in the mid-morning hours, depending on weather conditions. We both look forward to this new experience and challenge to start off the summer of 2013.
It’s always a wet and busy summer and I hope you can assist me to reach my #1 goal for the season, reaching my fundraising goal for St. Vincent’s Medical Center Foundation. Any amount is appreciated and it amazes me how quickly the totals click upward.
