Charity 8 Challenge 2024

Michael Simpkins-Volpe is raising funds for CHOC

2024 is the “year of more” so this year I will be doing my very first 8 miler for the amazing charity, CHOC. CHOC is tireless in its dedication to raise funds to assist children and teenagers battling cancer and other life-threatening illnesses by providing everything from emotional to financial support. So along with CHOC this year I say, I too can be tireless in my dedication and swim the 8 miler. But why do 8 when you can go the extra mile or two. So this year, not only will I do the 8 miler but I will also swim two extra events, the family event to swim with beautiful Mom on Saturday, and the individual race on Sunday

So family, friends and anyone else who is out there to help support this incredible charity, please go the extra mile by adding something to our fundraising. Every donation, no matter the size, contributes significantly to CHOC's noble cause, offering a lifeline to children in need of support.

Together, we can go the extra mile
