  • On April 22, Winthrop Pediatrics hosted the sixth annual Pediatric Fund for the Future Swim-a-Thon at the Hofstra University Swim Center. Participants enjoyed a fun-filled morning that featured swim instructions from Total Immersion Swimming, music from the Garden City High School jazz ensemble, the Central Beat rock and roll band, raffles, massages, gifts and more. The event attracted approximately 100 participants and raised $14,000 for the Pediatric Fund for the Future.

    "Every year, I am astounded by the overwhelming support and enthusiasm that is demonstrated by all of those who attend the Swim-a-Thon," explained Ron Marino, DO, MPH, Associate Chairman and Director of General Pediatrics. "Parents and children alike truly understand the importance of this fundraiser."

    To date, swimmers of all ages have raised more than $92,000 to support the high-quality comprehensive services that Winthrop provides to thousands of children each year.
