I encourage all swimmers to take part in the World Swim for Malaria which has been extended past Dec. 3, 2006 to June 3 of 2007. I did a swim Dec. 3. Friends and family helped me raise $160. for treated sleep nets for Africa. The organizers say that 3,000 children per day die in Africa of malaria, a largely preventable disease. On Dec. 3, over 250,000 swimmers in all nations swam for the cause. They hope to have one million swimming. Response from the U.S. has been less than overwhelming. Please let's do our part. It's like Katrina every day in other parts of the world. Bono would approve.
