Advanced Care Physical Therapy and members from the BCPA Wellness Team were proud to support the 12th annual Carly’s Crossing at Gallagher Beach. Thank you to Hannah, Peter, and Maggie for raising funds and for coming out to support the event. Carly’s Crossing is a unique, open-water swim event (the only one of its kind in Western New York!) that brings thousands of swimmers and spectators each year to Buffalo’s waterfront in support of pediatric cancer research and patient support programs through Carly’s Club at Roswell Park Cancer Institute.
Carly’s Crossing featured three different course options:
- 600-yard non-competitive swim
- 1-mile non-competitive swim
- 1-mile timed, competitive swim
Swimmers raised pledges to participate in one or more of the featured courses but there were plenty of opportunities for non-swimmers to get involved, too! The on-land party included live music, basket raffles, food, games, activities and prizes. It was a beautiful day at Gallagher Beach for a great cause. According to Hannah who works in the Wheatfield Office, “I really enjoyed swimming with my dad to support such a great event. I am looking forward to participating again next year.”
