  • In what proved to be Winthrop's most successful Swimathon yet, swimmers of all ages raised over $15,000 in support of the Hagedorn Pediatric Inpatient Center's "Fund for the Future" at the 7th Annual Swimathon held on April 13 at Hofstra University's Swim Center.

    "The Swimathon has grown into a highly anticipated annual event, providing a wonderful opportunity for both children and adults to participate in community service, while enjoying a healthy activity," said Ron Marino, DO, MPH, Associate Chairman and Director of General Pediatrics and organizer of the annual fundraiser.

    Contributing to the success of the Swimathon were the Garden City High School jazz ensemble, Central Beat Rock Band, Joe Petrush from Total Immersion swim instruction, Denise Cook, RN, and Cathleen Grossfeld from All About Kids who volunteered their time and services to the event.
