Swim for Pancreatic Cancer
Jeannette Allan is organizing a fundraiser called Swim For Life to raise funds for Saanich Peninsula Hospital’s Palliative Care Unit in support of her friend who was recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. As Jeannette’s friend lives abroad and Jeannette is unable to assist her as much as she would like to in person, she decided to coordinate this fundraiser as a way to help. Jeannette is an avid swimmer who has swum in open water several times in the US, and she thought it fitting to do a long-distance swim in honour of her friend.
The event will take place on Saturday, August 19th, with Jeannette entering the water from Mill Bay Marina at 9 am and finishing up at Deep Cove (public beach near Madrona Drive). Blue Dog Kayaking is hosting a group tour that will support Jeannette for the first few hours of her swim, we are also offering a support kayak, and rentals of equipment- all proceeds will be going to her fundraiser.
