Swimming for a CURE

Boy it has been a really long time since our last post!!  Yes, we are doing well and loving every minute of this summer!! 

This post is to tell you about a really great event happening in our neighborhood this Thursday.

Thursday, June 13, our neighborhood swim team is having an ORANGE OUT at their swim meet. 

The team is raising money for CURE Childhood Cancer in honor of Abby, Cole, and Elena, all kids in our neighborhood who are either survivors or who are currently fighting leukemia. Through an orange rubber duck raffle, a bake sale, bracelet sales, a “Leukemia Blows Morning View Manta Rays Swimming for a CURE” t-shirt sale, and donations, the team will be raising much needed funds in the fight against childhood cancer.

Event organizers have already sold 90 shirts, 144 ducks for the duck raffle, and have some YUMMY, YUMMY, YUMMY treats lined up for the bake sale.   50 AMAZING prizes have been donated for the duck raffle and there will be newspaper reporters and photographers at the event. The donation buckets are ready and there are some FUN, FUN, FUN additional surprises in store for the evening! 

The evening will be kicked off at 5:55 with Abby, Elena, and Cole ‘swimming for a cure’ with a lap of courage across the pool!  

Please come help us raise money to find a CURE for childhood cancer! No one fights alone!

Thanks for continuing to fight this fight with us, pray for us and cheer us on!

Our next post this week will be a 'What's Been Happening' and 'What's Ahead for Us' post.

In Him,
The Tates
