Hello! My name is Amy Larson and I am asking for your help in fundraising for a great cause. In the past few years, as part of the TriToFinish triathlon team, I’ve competed in several races; the top on my list being ‘Escape from Alcatraz’ – swimming from Alcatraz Federal Prison to shore.
After conquering Alcatraz, I began aiming for a new goal. Hearing about the Mackinac Straits Swim, along with the support given to Habitat for Humanity in fundraising efforts, I determined this was it; a once-in-a-lifetime swim mission.
Currently part of the East Grand Rapids Masters Swim Team, I love to swim both in the pool and outside in the elements. I also spend much of my time strength and endurance training at Allegro Coaching in East Grand Rapids.
Being an active member of Spectrum Health Young Professionals, I have had a first-hand opportunity to volunteer with this wonderful organization. Through building a home for a family, I learned that much more than construction goes into these projects. The impact it has on families and their quality of life cannot be compared to.
With my desire to help more families, and my goal of swimming the straits, I am asking for your help in finishing my mission. In order to participate in this wonderful event, I must reach a fundraising goal of $4,800 for the Habitat for Humanity organization.
Thank you so much for your consideration to help me reach my goal!
