My name is Zane Forte. I am 16 years old and a junior at St. Petersburg Catholic High School. On January 12, 2020 I will be participating in the Tampa Bay Frogman Swim. This is a 3.1 mile swim across Tampa Bay that benefits the Navy SEAL Foundation. This will be my third time participating in this event. I will be swimming for all of the Navy SEALs that have fallen to protect the country we call home, as well as their families that made the ultimate sacrifice of losing a loved one. Being close to a Navy SEAL family I have seen firsthand the abundance of sacrifices that military families make. From moving countries, not seeing a loved one for months, and knowing that part of their family is in danger. This fundraiser is one of the most helpful and one of the most important fundraisers, because for one day we get to get to make sacrifices for those who made sacrifices for us. I do not plan on winning the race, but want the families of fallen SEALs to know that people care about them. I hope to raise $6,000 dollars for the families, and ask for your support.
