Swimming 5 Miles with American Cancer Society

Hi lovie, I have very exciting news to share with you.


I’ve created a fundraiser with Just Giving & the American Cancer Society this May (2024) to swim 5 miles to raise money and awareness.


Yep, you read that right. This May I am super excited and humbled to be participating in a fundraiser with the American Cancer Society.


It is quite serendipitous how I decided upon this, I just saw an instagram ad, & felt it was for me. You might now that I grew up as a swimmer. I always found peace and solace in the tranquility of a pool. Finding a rhythm in my pace and my breath, as the water ripples and flows over my being.

One of my best friends Julia recently began working a new job at ACS. This is a great opportunity for me to support my incredible friend, help others & get some great exercise (3 of my favorite things). Her husband was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia. So I swim for Steven’s healing and recovery, I swim for Julia, and I swim for every other individual who has been affected by cancer.


Together, we heal.


I’m planning to track some of my stats for fun, so check that out below.
