Lower East Sider to Swim Boston Harbor Today to Benefit Cancer Research
One brave Lower East Sider is taking a plunge into Boston Harbor today. All in the name of charity. Better the Habah than the Charles, though.
That’s right, David Henry is swimming in the 21st Annual Swim Across America: Boston Harbor Swim, to support kids cancer research at Massachusetts General Hospital for Children and Dana-Farber.
It’s a twenty-two mile relay style, open-water swim beginning at 7 a.m. this morning from Rowes Wharf. A minimum fundraising pledge of $2,000 is required for individuals to participate.
“Every year, swimmers of all ages come together for the Swim Across America Boston Harbor Swim to make a splash in the fight against cancer,” said Kitty Tetreault, event director, Swim Across America Boston. “Participants get to spend the day doing something they love while raising critical funds for pediatric programs at Dana-Farber and MassGeneral Hospital for Children.”
