St. Vincent’s SWIM Across the Sound is hosting the 21st annual Memorial Service on Sunday, Aug. 5, at 8:30 a.m., at Captain’s Cove Seaport in Bridgeport. Registration begins at 8 a.m. The event is free of charge, open to all members of the community and will celebrate the lives of family members and friends lost to cancer, regardless of where they received treatment. It will take place rain or shine.
The memorial service seeks to remember and carry on the spirit of those who have died from cancer. The service provides an opportunity for families and friends to heal after the loss of loved ones, and reflects St. Vincent’s mission as it acknowledges the importance and contribution of every life. It is another way that St. Vincent’s SWIM Across the Sound supports area residents in the fight against cancer.
