The Smith Swim and Dive team is proud to be participating in the Hour of Power on Tuesday, November 13th from 5-6pm at the Smith College Dalton Pool to raise awareness of sarcoma and contribute to the Ted Mullin Fund.
Ted Mullin was a former captain of the Carleton College swimming team, who died from Sarcoma in 2006. The Hour of Power is a 60-minute practice set of all-out sprint relays and maximum number of flips, and was Ted’s favorite practice. Over 100 teams are participating in the Hour of Power this year to raise money and awareness for sarcoma research. Sarcoma is a diverse, rare group of malignancies that affect bone, muscle, fat, peripheral nerves and soft tissues. Little research and drug development funding exists for these diseases. The Fund supports sarcoma research and the introduction of new therapies for treatment of sarcoma at The University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital.
If you're in the area and can make it, we would love to have as many people there as possible to participate and/or cheer! Any amount you can donate will get us closer to our $1000 goal for this year! All the money will be given to the Ted Mullin Fund and will help improve the lives of adolescents and young adults who are disproportionately affected by the disease.
