Maury People Sotheby's International Realty is proud to be a Platinum Sponsor of this year's Swim Across America - Nantucket Island Open Water Swim. In addition to sponsorship, a number of our agents will once again participate as athletes with The Maury People Sotheby's International Realty team.
The race is a challenge in and out of the water. In the water athletes face 4 miles of open ocean swimming that is tough in calm waters, add the winds and shifting tides off Nantucket and every foot of those 4 miles can be grueling. Out of the water teams and athletes participate in activities to meet fundraising goals but as the team puts it "Open water swimming is a challenge, fundraising is a challenge, but neither compare to the personal battle against cancer that 1 in 2 women and 1 in 3 men in the United States will fight."
From the Maury People Sotheby's International Realty team webpage:
In our lifetime, 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer. We joined the SAA community so that, together, we can change that. We are challenging ourselves by swimming in the Nantucket Island Swim and raising money to fight cancer on Nantucket.
With every dollar raised from our Swim, we are changing the game of cancer care on Nantucket and we should all be proud of that. Proceeds directly support the Nantucket Cottage Hospital (NCH) and the Palliative and Supportive Care of Nantucket (PASCON) oncology efforts to fund vital services for local and visiting cancer patients, minimizing their need to travel for appointments, testing and treatment. Our support allows NCH oncology programs to keep more Nantucket residents on-island for their cancer care, providing them a compassionate and caring environment. We help bring world-class oncologists to the island, allowing our patients to receive treatments at home. Through PASCON, our patients and families receive important physical, emotional and spiritual care free of charge.
Please support us by sponsoring our swim and making a gift. The money you give will go towards cancer care on Nantucket. Thank you for your generosity and may it lead to a cancer-free world!
The Swim Across America - Nantucket Island Open Water Swim will take place on July 23, 2022.
