Winthrop | Donate : Annual Swimathon


Nearly 150 swimmers made a splash on Sunday, March 9, 2014 at Winthrop-University Hospital�s 13th Annual Swim-a-Thon at Hofstra University�s Swim Center. Participants raised funds for the Hospital�s Child Life Program, a program through which certified Child Life Specialists utilize play and education to improve children�s understanding of medical procedures, teach relaxation techniques to help young patients cope with illness or surgery, and provide emotional support for the entire family. The 2014 event raised approximately $44,000, bringing this event�s total contributions to the Child Life Program since its inception in 2002 to more than $288,000.

Participants enjoyed swim coaching by Joe Petrush from Total Immersion Swimming; massage therapy by Licensed Massage Therapist Denise Cook, RN; live music by the Mineola High School jazz band and Central Beat rock band; crafts provided by Cathy Grossfeld of All About Kids; yoga, prizes and more.

�We are grateful for the community�s support in making the event such a success, and every lap goes a long way,� said Ron Marino, DO, MPH, Associate Chairman and Director of General Pediatrics at Winthrop, and organizer of the annual fundraiser. �The event grows yearly and is great time for all!�
