This Saturday December 5, 2015 from 10am-1pm, registered swimmers will be participating in ‘Laps for a Cure’ Swim-A-Thon at Gold’s Gym of Laredo on 2626 E. Del Mar Blvd to raise funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. This is a fundraiser held in loving memory of a native Laredo Pediatrician, Dr. Baltazar R. Ramos, M.D. Dr. Ramos loved his family, patients and practice. His love for his practice and patients has inspired all who came across him. He was an advocate for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital that helps treat kids with cancer and support their families.
A team of high school students will be swimming for up to 2 hours or up to 200 lengths of the pool. We are asking to join us in support of them through either a flat donation or to pledge a certain amount of money per length where all proceeds will go to this great cause. Donations will be accepted either at the gym or at fw.to/m57TFmf.
