Jeni Hammond and Cindra Mielke have been swimming on Kelleys Island for more than 20 years to help make wishes come true. On Sunday, August 5, they will take on Lake Erie once again to raise funds for Make-A-Wish® Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana!
This year, Jeni and Cindra will swim to make the wishes of local kids come true. Five-year-old Anna, battling acute lymphoblastic leukemia, and three-year-old Ella, battling Langerhans cell histiocytosis, both wish to visit Walt Disney World Resort
The funds raised from the event will sponsor these wishes, and Anna and Ella will be there to cheer the swimmers on. As these fierce fundraisers swim in to shore, there will be a party to celebrate the wish families.
Cindra and Jeni have raised more than $700,000 to date to benefit Make-A-Wish®. The Kelleys Island Benefit Swim is a heartwarming yearly event for the island community and an experience you won’t soon forget. Please contact Cherie Chatreau-Grifo at (419) 469-6321 with any questions regarding the event.
Make a splash this summer and join in on the fundraising fun!
