The 15th Annual Bay Ridge Marlins Swimathon was held on
Saturday, July 16th and 17th. We raised over $13K for
pediatric cancer research at Johns Hopkins. Over 120 swimmers swam
18,000 laps (230 miles) in 24 hours.
All money raised by the event
directly supports the research at the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive
Cancer Center Pediatric Oncology at Johns Hopkins, where a 19-year-old swimmer,
Susie, underwent 130 long weeks of treatment for leukemia.
Susieís cancer is in full remission, but the annual event has
become an important part of the teamís summer experience. We
had sponsors that contributed food and prizes, including
Ledos, Whole Foods
and Chick Fil A.
