Do you recognize this guy? Meet Braulio Fonseca.
We recall the days of this former FHS swimmer who graced our pool with his skills for many swim meets. Now, in just a few weeks, Braulio is taking on a way BIGGER feat. He will be swimming at Alcatraz Sharkfest Swim 2019!!
Words from Braulio:
“On July 27th I will attempt to swim from the infamous prison, Alcatraz, better known as “the Rock” to the San Francisco mainland…without a wetsuit!
I am dedicating this swim to Kelly Klein, Michele Michelle Boyd DeJong, and anyone else who has passed away from cancer, left us unexpectedly, or has cancer now. This is my way to pay homage to my own two personal battles with cancer as well as keep the spirit alive of those who suffered and or are suffering now.
I truly believe that I cannot complete this race without them. I swim for those who can’t and their spirit will take me across successfully.
Please feel free to send me names to add to my body. I will be taking names until the second week of July. Please share this with anyone you think would want to be a part.
Have a name of a friend or loved one that has fought cancer that you would like Braulio to write on his body during his swim? Click or tap here to email Matt and let him know you want a name added! We will make sure to get it to Braulio.
We are so proud of you and your journey, Braulio! You have our support now and always. Wishing you all the best on the 27th – FHF is cheering you on!
