Pam Joyce is an Associate at the Larchmont Houlihan Lawrence office. She is always ebullient and willing to lend a hand to anyone in need – even though her schedule is a tough one between children, her real estate profession and charities! On Saturday, July 27th, 2013, Pam volunteered in the “ 2013 Swim Across America” local challenge which started at the Larchmont Yacht Club.
Pam participated with 10 other swimmers in “Team Cohen” so named after Talia Cohen, a Mamaroneck High School Student who tragically passed away a few years ago.
“Talia Cohen, died of cancer at age 16 in November 2002. Talia was an inspiration to everyone who knew her. She fought her 19-month battle against cancer with courage and dignity. ”
The various teams could either swim in a one mile, up to a 4 mile race, starting at the Larchmont Yacht Club and ending at the Shore Club with the proceeds going to cancer research. There were different ‘waves’ of swimmers (so aptly named), and there were many kayakers helping along the way (a shout out here for my friends Andy and Fiona Yue!)..
This marked the 21st year the “Swim Across America” made swim history in fighting cancer, and as an aside over $1.1 Million was raised last year.
Thank you Pam – thank you everyone..
Larchmont is GREAT!
