This summer I'm finally swimming my very first open water race (I've wanted to for years!). I'll be swimming 2 mi across Chatfield Lake outside of Denver, CO. You can see more about the race here. I'm swimming this race in memory of Maeve McAlister who, 2 years ago, had her life taken away far too soon. I am raising money for the nonprofit Miles with Maeve, which helps families going through pregnancy or infant loss. You can read more about them below! My goal is to raise $500! Any bit helps (and also encourages me in the furthest, nonstop swim I've ever taken on!) Thank you so much for your support!!
Garrett and Christine founded Miles with Maeve after the tragic loss of their daughter, Maeve, last year 37 weeks into the pregnancy. Your generous donations will go to help families who've suffered a similar pregnancy or infant loss. Nearly 1 in 4 pregnancies end in loss so sadly there are millions of people in this country who are trying to cope with this tragedy.
