On August 5, 2017, Shelton resident Kim Adler and her team will join approximately 200 swimmers, accompanied by a fleet of 100 boats, and take turns swimming 15.5 miles from Port Jefferson, New York, across Long Island Sound to Captain’s Cove Seaport in Bridgeport.
All are participating in the St. Vincent’s 30th Anniversary SWIM Across the Sound marathon to raise money for cancer patients.
Adler — a Clinical Nurse Educator, Perioperative Services, at St. Vincent’s Medical Center — is a member of the “Sink or Swim” six-person relay team. The money they raise from pledges goes to St. Vincent’s SWIM Across the Sound, which helps cancer patients and their family deal with the non-medical challenges that cancer brings and that insurance does not cover.
