15th Annual Swimathon




 

 

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.
