12th Annual Swimathon


 

 

The 12th Annual Bay Ridge Marlins Swimathon will be held on Saturday, July 27th and 28th. Last year, we raised over $13K for pediatric cancer research at Johns Hopkins. Over 115 swimmers swam 20,070 laps (334 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 16-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 had sponsors that contributed food and prizes, including the All-American Steakhouse, Capital Bicycle, Papa Johns and Grumps Cafe.

The Arundel Breakfast Club will once again provide round the clock swimmers. The Atom Bumz and Freak N Fuzz will perform on Saturday night.

This year, you can contribute online using a credit card or your PayPal account. Simply click on the Donate button on the left.
