Swim Against Addiction

"Please join Mike and I in raising funds to support opioid treatment awareness in our community. As first responders, we have both seen firsthand how this devastating disease has affected our country. Tearing families apart and stealing the lives of our youth. On September 1, 2018, we will take part in an endurance swim to raise money for this cause. We hope the money raised will help fund two incredible programs aimed towards treating opoid addiction as well as preventing it both on a local and national level. "

Thank you,
Mike Perreira
