Patty Flanagan - Boston Light Swim
As you know, I love to swim. You may also know I'm passionate about some things, and want the rest of the world to know it. I am also lucky to be graced with so many blessings, most importantly a wonderful family, and good health. So this year I decided to embark on an effort to raise awareness and funds for the YWCA, where I have worked and played since 1974.
I hope to raise $ 5,000.00 for the YWCA Central Massachusetts, as I train for and swim 8 miles across Boston Harbor on August 18th! The YWCA is where I swam as a child, and developed the confidence and love for swimming that continues today. I want to give back.
Check back often, as I will share my thoughts throughout this endeavor.
Thank you for visisting my fundraising page.
Donating through this website is simple, fast, and totally secure. It is also the most effiecient way to support my fundraising efforts.
Many thanks for your support - and don't forget to forward this to anyone you think might want to donate too.

Participants begin the race in the water at Boston Light on Little Brewster and continue past George’s Island and Rainsford Island, under the Long Island Bridge, around Thompson’s Island, finishing 8 miles later at the L Street Bathhouse in South Boston.
