4th Annual Swim-a-thon
in honor of Katherine Athanassiades

Benefitting CURE Childhood Cancer

Saturday, August 16, 2014
Venetian Pool

Anytime between 8 a.m. – 11 a.m.

On Saturday, August 16, Venetian will host its 4th annual swim-a-thon to benefit CURE Childhood Cancer, in honor of our own Venetian Poolshark, Katherine (Kate) Athanassiades.

Kate Athanassiades, who turned 17 this summer, has been a member of Venetian for 12 years. Diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor in September 2010, Katherine has endured neurosurgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. She is a rising Junior at The Paideia School and lives with her family in Druid Hills. She has been a Venetian Poolshark for 12 years and has volunteered as a Junior Shark coach for the last five summers. Raising money for CURE is Kate’s idea. She became aware of the important work CURE does during her treatment and wanted to find a way to give back. Since she loves to swim laps, Kate thought a swim-a-thon might be a great way for the Venetian pool community to work together to raise money for CURE.

Start gathering your pledges as we raise important money for CURE. Come join us on August 16 and swim laps to raise donations in Kate’s honor and help work towards eliminating childhood cancers. You can sign up to swim by clicking the red “Register” button at the top of this pageDon’t forget to create your fundraising page so friends and family can support your efforts. Pledge forms and sign up will also be available at the swimming pool check-in desk.

We hope to beat last year’s numbers!
