The 14th Annual Bay Ridge Marlins Swimathon will be held on
Saturday, July 18th and 19th. Last year, we raised over $10K for
pediatric cancer research at Johns Hopkins. Over 88 swimmers swam
12,070 laps (204 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.
This year, you can contribute online using a credit card or your
PayPal account. Simply click on the Donate button on the left.
