Seattle car accident attorney Dean Standish Perkins pledges Team Perkins to raise $5,000 in the August 21, 2013 Swim for Life across Lake Washington. The 2.5 mile team-swim benefits Be The Match Registry, the National Marrow Donor Program.
Mr. Perkins participated in Swim for Life for the first time in 2012. “I became involved because of the physical challenge. I drive over the Lake every day and wondered what it would be like to swim across. Then I learned about the importance of the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP). Now I do it to support the mission and help save lives,” said Mr. Perkins. He challenges the community at large to support the 2013 Swim for Life by participating or pledging at the Puget Sound Blood Center’s event website .
“By adding people to the Be The Match Registry, NMDP, Swim for Life helps the thousands of patients with cancer and other illnesses who cannot find their lifesaving match. This fundraiser enables the Puget Sound Blood Center (PSBC) to recruit more potential donors and broaden our recruitment efforts, giving hope to patients around the world looking for a transplant donor,” said Kristina Minear, Fund Development Officer, PSBC.
