Channeling Care for Cancer


We have joined our love for the water to help those battling cancer. All of us have swam a solo crossing or a member of relay across the English Channel.

Come follow us swim around Manhattan, NY and later across Long Island Sound, all for a good cause.

St. Vincent's Medical Center Foundation, www.swimacrossthesound.org helps patients and families battling the burdens that cancer has faced them.

5 days until Swim Across the Sound

It's almost here, the Swim Across the Sound.

17 miles across Long Island Sound, Port Jefferson to Captain's Cove, Bridgeport CT.

We have a new member to our team, speedy, young Julia Green. Julia is Marcia's daughter, so the genes are in place and we are looking forward to handing the reins of Open Water swimming to the next generation of swimmers.

Stay tuned for the excitement of the day.

Surprise for the team

I have  a surprise for the ChannelingCARE relay, I will reveal it to you on Friday after the meeting with the NYCswim 'Powers that Be', www.nycswim.org . I wish everyone (alternates) could join us on the relay this Saturday, it has been a long 8 months of paperwork, qualifying swims (even though, we all have successfully swam across the English Channel) and FUNDRAISING.

A wonderful cause, St. Vincent's Medical Center Foundation, we are trying to help.
Please consider a donation.

Talk to you soon,
marcy

The time is approaching FAST, are we ready for some water fun... you bet!



I was hoping to post a 10 minute video preview of the ChannelingCARE relay, unfortunately I am running into a brick wall, BUT I have posted it FaceBook on the Channeling Care page. I will continue to work on the blog problem but I will be using Facebook if I can't figure it out. Spread the word please.
