58 x 58 Swim for Pre School Education for Homeless Children

I am planning to swim 58 miles by my 58th birthday this July (that is 2 + 1/2 miles a week in a pool).

Having had two cancer scares last year, I have come to see that life is very short and can be tenuous. We take our body and health for granted and taking care of the inside is going to be my priority for this year. With exceptionally high cholesterol to manage as well I need to get my health and body back on track, and exercise has been one of the prescriptions my doctor has given me

Having been a childcare professional of many years I was very interested in the Children’s Center that has recently opened in San Diego, at the Rescue Mission, for the children of homeless families. It is a fantastic service, so crucial for the health and development of these children.

Homeless, they live in the shelter at night which means that during the day they have no where to go. This program offers an opportunity for the children to play, learn, and be safe, while their parents can look for work, attend college and make preparations to move their children into a more permanant way of life.

Please support me to keep me on target! Many thanks.
