Welcome to My Personal Page
Dear friends & family,
I have been behind in my training and in my fundraising for this year’s Women Swimmin’. I know you can’t help me with the training but I hope you will help me support Hospicare. For the past 15 years, I’ve either swum or paddled for a great cause. My goal was to continue til I turned 70 so this may be my last year of taking the plunge. I’ve included a collage of the great fundraising designs done by my PR agent, Holly, over the years. I find it remarkable that I’ve not aged a bit!
For the past 15 yrs, Donna and I have been Women Swimmin’ partners. Five yrs ago, my daughter-in-law, Tobi, joined us. We three, along with 300 other swimmers, 150 boaters, lifeguards, and volunteers venture out in the wee hours of the morning to support a great cause. We do the swim & paddling but it is you who make it successful by your encouragement and financial support. This year’s goal is $400,000, a reach for a small community, but I’m hoping to make a dent in that total with your help.
My initial personal motivation in supporting Hospicare was my mother’s death at too early an age, without the benefit of hospice or palliative care services. When I learned about hospice many years later, I decided it was a cause worth supporting. Over the years, I have seen the value of hospice services, for my sister-in-law in the UK, for my friend in Cayutaville, and for many friends and colleagues right here who have benefitted from the residence, bereavement services, and palliative care. Perhaps your family members and friends have valued those services as well. Please join me in supporting Women Swimmin’. With your support, my spirits will be buoyed and Hospicare’s services strengthened.
Many thanks for considering,
