Annual Swim-a-Thon for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

On Monday, July 15th the IRC swim team will host its 6th annual a Swim-a-Thon to benefit The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS).  The team held its first Swim-a-Thon in 2018 in support of a fellow Nessie, Meaghan Kilner, who was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma in January 2017. The Nessies continue to show up every year to help put an end to Blood Cancer.

LLS’s continued advancements over the years, are responsible for the blood cancer survival rate doubling and tripling; in some cases, the survival rate has even quadrupled. And many LLS supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients but are now used to treat patients with rare forms of stomach and skin cancers. They’re even being tested in clinical trials for patients with a range of cancers including lung, brain, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers. LLS funded drugs are now being tested for patients with other non-cancerous diseases like Diabetes, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Multiple Sclerosis.


If you are new to Swim-a-Thon, here is how it works.  You and your swimmer would ask friends and family members to consider pledging either a certain amount of money (such as $10) or a set rate per lap swum (maybe $0.25 per lap). Write down each friend or family member and their pledge amount in the pledge sheet (attached) and bring it to the swim-a-thon. The coaches will count the number of laps swum by your swimmer. You can then donate the money via check or online.


All Nessies who are raising money may come to either the AM practice (7:30-9:15 am) or the PM practice (4:15-6:45pm).  We need to know how many swimmers to expect so please sign up on the sheet at practice this week.  There will be treats for all the swimmers who attend, as well as prizes for the most money raised and the most laps swum .


NEW THIS YEAR…. PARENT LANE!  Parents are encouraged to join in the fun – swim along side your Nessie and help to raise money.  There will also be prize for parents with most money raised and most laps swum. Hope to see many of you there! Thank you for supporting a really important cause.

There are two of payment options: you can write out a check payable to “LLS” or donate online using a credit card.

Thank you for your support!
