TOM AND GREG VAN VOLKENBURG SWIM LAKE ERIE FOR A CURE!
FOLLOW US LIVE:
24.3 mile swim across Lake Erie to raise awareness about Rheumatoid Arthritis.
The swim will occur between July 15th - August 5th depending on which day is the best with wind, waves, weather, etc.
We will begin the swim in Long Point, Ontario and finish in Northeast, PA
Our mother was diagnosed with RA in her early 20s and has been living with the disease for over 40 years. Arthritis is the nation's #1 cause of disability affecting more than 50 million Americans including 300,000 children. We've witnessed first-hand the debilitating affects that rheumatoid arthritis has had on our mom. She's had to overcome significant physical and emotional challenges due to her arthritis so we are taking on this challenge of a 24.3 mile swim across Lake Erie in her honor and we need your support! Our goal is to raise awareness and funds to support arthritis research so all of those affected by arthritis can have better access to care, better resources and ultimately, one day, a cure.
