BENEFITING: MAGGIE FISCHER MEMORIAL GREAT SOUTH BAY SWIM INC
EVENT DATE: Jul 17, 2015
On Friday Morning, July 17, 2015 (i.e. next Friday AM), I will again be swimming the 5.5 miles of the Great South Bay in memory of my friend Maggie Fischer, and to raise money for children's hospice care. (They give like 98% of funds to their official charity, a hospice on the south shore of long island.)
Link to Hospice Care website is here, to which the swim donates the money: http://www.hospicecarenetwork.org/children-and-family-bereavement All donors will receive an email following the event with my "race recap."
Special thanks to Peter Patterson who is SWIMMING THE EVENT THIS YEAR (he was my kayaker last year) and who has been training like a badass and pushing me to do the same. My goal is to better my time from last year, which I think I can do if the conditions cooperate.
