Zach's SWIM page
Thank you for visiting our SWIM page for the 2021 Swim Across the Sound. This years swim will be my second (Since 2020 was postponed due to COVID). I am beyond excited for the event for many reasons this year. First, I carry with me the memories of several friends and family who make this swim and it's purpose so important to me. My friend Jim Malaney, my aunt Victoria Arteta, and family friend Michael Dennehy all fought valiantly and courageously when they were diagnosed with cancer. Additionally, I will swim in honor of the late David Collings who was the captain of the Hilbre Island (Our namesake and escort boat for this year's swim). I swim in their honor. My number one priority in participating in the SWIM is to ensure that others have the resources and means to diagnose, treat, and ultimately beat cancer. The SWIM Foundation's mission is to provide vital resources to families who are faced with a cancer diagnosis.
This year I will be swimming with my brother Albert and a group of strong swimmers who are not new to Open Water Swimming. This year we will be named the Hilbre Island Swimmers in honor of Dave Collings whose sailboat is named the Hilbre Island. We are extremely excited to take part in this event and will be training hard over the coming months to prepare for the swim.
Any and all donations go directly to the foundation, so anything you would be willing to donate would be meaningful! We appreciate your support and be sure to track us on the day of the swim (I will share a link on the day of the swim. Just look for team Hilbre Island Swimmers!).
