06/22/09 Media Alert: Swm Across America June 27 Greenwich to Stamford Swim

SAA Logo

Swimmers Make Waves to Fight Cancer
WHO: The third annual SWIM ACROSS AMERICA GREENWICH TO STAMFORD SWIM is making a big splash in the area in its fight against cancer with its swim scheduled for Saturday, June 27, 2009.

WHAT: There will be two open water swims - a 1.5 mile swim that starts at the beach at Greenwich (Tod's) Point with participants swimming along the shore of Long Island Sound, and a shorter half-mile swim (geared for swimmers ages 12 and older), that is also in Long Island Sound and leaves from the Rocky Point Club in Old Greenwich. In addition, Swim Across America is offering a pool swim this year at the Rocky Point Club for those who prefer to pledge their support in a pool. All swimmers end up at Cummings Point in Stamford, Conn., at the headquarters for the Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy (ACGT), which is the beneficiary of the swim and will use the funds raised to support a research grant for brain cancer with one of ACGT's research fellows at Harvard University.

ACGT is the nation's only non-profit organization dedicated exclusively to funding cancer gene therapy research. All Swim Across America participants and volunteers must register in advance at http://rs6.net/tn.jsp?et=1102619613408&s=42220&e=001qt3zyY98v8VzwzVXYbi-zTrI-MoXE8DY-LK-kpuVcgPnRKg7B--r-Qy6VRhwv_-thYXHCUrXVGweOFZwQ-Sij-NxA5fyVj0gUXf_oRCqcmPz7JwJCPYHxmkoMBUiprpM by clicking on the Greenwich Swim link.

There are numerous "teams" swimming this year in honor of friends and loved that are battling cancer or in memory of loved ones who have lost their fight to cancer. One team is "Team Max," which is in memory of Max Scotti, a seven year-old Greenwich resident and avid swimmer who lost his fight to brain cancer just this past April. Other individual swimmers and teams include friends, family and even cancer survivors, such as Karen Newman, a five-time all American triathlete who is swimming for the third time in a Swim Across America event. Karen is an Old Greenwich resident who is battling breast cancer. Swimmers come from all over Fairfield and Westchester Counties to participate in this event.

Several Olympic swimmers will also be swimming on Saturday and include Janel Jorgensen, Craig Beardsley and Brenda Borgh Bartlett. The honorary co-chairs include Olympic swimming champion Donna de Varona and her husband John Pinto, and John and Cindy Sites.

Riverside man gets four years in drunken-driving death

By Debra Friedman

STAMFORD -- A Riverside man was sentenced to four years in prison Tuesday for an October 2008 drunken-driving accident that killed 20-year-old Joseph Borselio of Greenwich.

At state Superior Court, Judge Richard Comerford listened to impassioned pleas from Borselio's family to sentence Douglas Moore, 25, to the maximum jail time he could receive.

"It's outrageous to me," said Kayla Borselio, Joseph Borselio's older sister of the accident. "I wonder how someone can engage in such irresponsible drinking and take away someone that was completely happy with their life," she said while sobbing.
