Wanted you to know the first Worcester Area Masters (WAM) open water swim this weekend was a huge success. “Miles 4 Michelle” was held Saturday 8/23 at Fort Pond in Lancaster.
We had 116 register. Over 40 NEMS registered swimmers plus many local college and age group swimmers. (2 separate swims, several waves)There was over $5K raised to support local USS swimmer Michelle Farnsworth in her battle against a rare cancer rhabdomyosarcoma RMS.
We had so much fun Saturday, WAM will aim to make this an annual event bringing our local swim community together – a reunion, great send off for college swimmers, and opportunity to raise money for a cause doing something we love.
Thank you for posting this event. We are happy to work with NEMS to make this even stronger next year.
