August 12th is around the corner. Not only is this date significant as it's a special bday for my mama, but it is also one of my favorite events of the year in Ithaca: Women Swimmin' for Hospicare! As my mom has always been a swimmer, a doer, and a tremendous support to the bereaved as a volunteer and friend (which Hospicare also does), I will honor her by swimming the 1.2 miles across Cayuga Lake on her birthday this year. Women Swimmin' celebrates life, and those who know my mom, let's just say she is lively!
The funds raised will go towards medical, emotional and spiritual support for patients and their families. Thanks to you, this end-of-life care is available to anyone in Tompkins or Cortland counties who needs it--REGARDLESS OF THEIR ABILITY TO PAY. Thanks to you, this event is the most successful local fundraising event, raising over $425,000! In its first year in 2004, it raised $54,000.
Thank you for swimming with me in spirit on 8/12. Click here to learn more and jump in to support this cause.
