Counting laps at the Women’s Cancer Resource Center’s “Swim A Mile” event
Oakland, CA | November 6th, 2019
I volunteered as a lap counter at the Women’s Cancer Resource Center’s “Swim A Mile” fundraiser. The event raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the Center, which works to improve the lives of women with cancer. I enjoyed connecting with many people whose family and friends have battled with cancer. It was also so empowering to see women who were in remission swim a mile and show that cancer can’t bring them down. Next year, I’d love to raise money and swim the mile with them!
