SurfAid Swim 4 Life

Update, 12 April: I swam 30 laps under sunny skies with the temperature pleasantly and surprisingly in the 80s. In less than a week, my sponsors donated over $700 to SurfAid - wow! Swim 4 Life West Coast '08 raised more than $50,000 for SurfAid's health programs. Since a mere $10 will get a mosquito net to a poor family to help protect them from malaria for 5 years, that's a lot of improved lives (and mosquitoes going hungry).

Worldwide, 10 million children die each year from preventable diseases. I'm participating in Swim 4 Life to raise money and awareness for SurfAid International's life-saving programs, by swimming laps for 30 minutes at Golden Gateway Tennis & Swim Club in San Francisco on April 12th.
