My Women Swimmin' Journey

I have been participating in Women Swimmin' since it first began 21 years ago.  Although I'm a pretty strong swimmer and I swim all year long --- the swim across Cayuga challenges me. When I first jump in the water, I am daunted by the distance -- and worry whether I will make it across.  I derive strength and courage -- thinking about the people whom I have lost, many of whom have been cared for at the end of their lives with hospice services.  

Throughout these past 2 decades, I have served on the planning committee helping in whatever way I can.  My biggest role has been to create the PODS --- to organize the women in groups to swim across the lake. The process for creating the PODS has changed significantly over the years -- as has the organization of the event.  Being part of Women Swimmin' has been a wonderful and meaningful journey.  The funds we raise for Hospicare make an enormous difference in the lives of so many people in our community.  Thank you for donating and supporting Hospicare!
