The South Run neighborhood pool fifth annual Swim-a-thon raised over $1,895 and counting for INOVA's Life With Cancer organization Sunday, July 14. Neighbors from Burke, Fairfax Station and the South Run neighborhood swam a combined total of 677 laps, amounting to 16,925 meters swam in the pool. Those who swam and those who didn't both donated, and friends and event organizers Michael Murphy, Nick Porter, Danny Murphy, Ryan Kelly and Jordan Krug are still in the donation collection process. The sum of $1,895 and counting will go to combat cancer through Life With Cancer, an INOVA organization that helps families of cancer patients throughout the treatment and recovery process. The friends started the event because, as Danny Murphy wrote in an email to the Connection, "our greater neighborhood community has been heavily affected by cancer. ... The purpose of this event is to raise awareness and money."
