BATH — Swimmers from the Livingston Conference will square off with their counterparts from the Finger Lakes League in a “Duel in the Pool” varsity girls meet for charity on Saturday, Sept. 24.

The event will begin at 10:30 a.m., hosted by the Bath-Haverling Aquatics Complex.

With the coaches support from both leagues, this will be a charity fund-raising event to benefit the UR Medicine’s Wilmot Cancer Institute at Noyes Health in Dansville.

This Cancer Center will serve as a satellite for approximately 4,000 patients that travel from Allegany, Livingston, Wyoming and Steuben Counties for outpatient care. The center will alleviate the strain of traveling an hour or more for radiation and or chemotherapy treatments.

The 2,300 square foot medical oncology clinic will reside in renovated and new first-floor space, featuring three (3) exam rooms and five (5) chemotherapy/infusion bays. It will also provide patients with access to state-of-the-art comprehensive cancer care and services including advanced diagnostic testing, clinical trials, outpatient palliative care and Wilmot Cancer Institute’s Cancer Survivorship Program.

We all have been touched by cancer in our lives some way, somehow. Come help support this charity fund-raising event. A $5 admission fee includes a program and heat sheet.

The intentions of this swim meet are to establish a competitive, fun-filled meet between the LCAA and FLL Girls Varsity Swim Teams, while raising money for a much needed cause.
