Calling all CW swimmers and parents,
If you aren’t yet aware of
the “Gold” Cancer Swim Group at CW, you should learn
more about this exciting program that Coach Z and the Dowling
Family have put together to help area children and teens suffering
from the side effects of cancer treatment. (Get more

CW Gold Cancer Swim Program
This program is entirely funded
through donations so we are forming a team this year at the Big
House Big Heart Run, described on www.bighousebigheart.com
, to allow all
CW families a chance to raise funds in support of the
“Gold” Group and ensure its success.
The Big House Big Heart Run is an
exciting event because it allows everyone to participate, offering
a 10K, 5K or a 1 Mile Fun Run. Runners, Walkers, Wheelchairs,
Strollers Welcome! The run takes
you through the University of Michigan’s beautiful campus
with a spectacular finish--a run through the Big House tunnel and
onto the field. You’ll finish on the UM Football Stadium 50
yard line and watch yourself on the Big House Big Screen!
All you have to do is to find
friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, etc… to sponsor you
in the run and ALL sponsorship money will go directly to the CW
Gold Group (and it’s tax deductible to boot.)
There is an entry fee to participate in the race, but the entry fee
is used to support other important local charities including UM ALS research, UM Program for Neurology
Research & Discovery, UM Cardiovascular Center and C. S. Mott
Children’s Hospital and Women’s Hospital!
Full details on race entry fees can be found at www.bighousebigheart.com
If you have a friend that is a
runner/walker, go ahead and encourage them to come out and join our
team. You can sponsor them instead.
mark your calendars for Sunday Oct 4th and come out and run with
your teammates for a great cause. 10K starts at 8:00 AM, 5K at
9:00 AM and 1M Fun run at 10:30 AM. Registration will be at
the north end of the stadium on race day 6:30-10 AM. It will
be fun to see so many CW t-shirts showing up on the Big House Big
Screen as we all cross the finish line!
To join the CW
team, please contact the team captains, Sue Whitener and Lisa
Mesaros at firstname.lastname@example.org. They will send
you everything you need to get started including donation record
