This year, Hannah and her teammates have raised the bar and set a goal of $14,000. As of 12:15 p.m. on Thursday, the team had already raised $9,016, but with the event just 4 days away, they still have a ways to go.

This young team consists of 14-17 year old swimmers (Hannah Babbitz, Zachary Babbitz, Madyson Barnick, Skyler Marini, Lydia Pokluda and Jillian Rice) who will swim relay style for the 15.5 mile course from Port Jefferson, LI to Captains Cove, Bridgeport.

All the money raised goes to Local Cancer Patients.

Here’s hoping for nice weather and jellyfish free waters.
