10568896_818998994785801_4801231508169601358_nLast year, Amity Swimmer (now team captain) Hannah Babbitz and her team raised $10,000 for St. Vincent’s Swim Across The Sound.

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.

This event is sponsored by St. Vincent’s Medical Center Foundation (in Bridgeport) to raise money for life saving cancer services for patients who would otherwise not be able to pay.

Hannah’s team consists of 6 teens (including her brother Zac Babbitz a freshman at Amity). With the help of the Amity community, last year they raised $10,000. This year they would like to meet or exceed that goal.10455555_813653848653649_718257248_n
