The 15th Annual Bay Ridge Marlins Swimathon will be held on
Saturday, July 16th and 17th. Last year, we raised over $14K for
pediatric cancer research at Johns Hopkins. Over 100 swimmers swam
14,000 laps (214 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
have sponsors that are contributing food and prizes, including
Papa Johns, Whole Foods
and Chick Fil A.
This year, you can contribute online using a credit card or your
PayPal account. Simply click on the Donate button on the left.
