Maury People Sotheby's International Realty is once again proud to support Swim Across America by being a Gold sponsor. Not only are we a sponsor but many of our agents participate in the Nantucket Island Open Water Swim as part of the Maury People team. This year's event is scheduled to take place on July 24, 2021.
From the Maury People team webpage
"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."
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.
