For Sinda Hall, Sweet Louise’s Senior Support Coordinator, completing a 1km swim was not only an opportunity to raise money for Sweet Louise Members, it was also a personal milestone after being diagnosed with breast cancer last year.
Sinda says “It came out of the blue – it was a complete shock. I’d had regular screenings and there hadn’t been any concerns.”
She used the opportunity to raise money for Sweet Louise Members when she undertook the King of the Bays State Ocean Swim Series. In just over a month, Sinda raised a whopping $4,000 through her Givealittle page.
“I was not expecting that kind of response. I was delighted to reach $1,000 let alone $4,000. I am so grateful for all the support from my family, friends and even people I don’t know.”
To make sure she’d get through the swim, Sinda trained for months at her local swimming pool and beaches.
“I felt such a great sense of achievement, the experience was simply amazing and raising that much money for Sweet Louise Members was so special.”
Thank you Sinda for your dedication and courage and to all those who gave for Sweet Louise.
