SEA ISLE CITY BEACH PATROL PARTNERS WITH FOR PETE'S SAKE

In September of 1999, Sea Isle City Beach patrol said goodbye to former lifeguard Peter R. Bossow, Jr. after he lost his battle with testicular cancer.  Prior to his death at age thirty, Peter founded For Pete's Sake Cancer Respite Foundation (formerly Crossing the Finish Line), an organization dedicated to providing  respite vacations  for adult cancer patients and their families. Since his death, For Pete's Sake has been sending families on weeklong respites to donated homes along the Jersey Shore and to other vacation locations along the East Coast.  These unforgettable and lasting vacations enable cancer patients and their loved ones the opportunity to strengthen, deepen, and unify their relationships.   

The beach patrol encourages individuals and teams to set their own fundraising goal.  The Sea Isle City Beach Patrol Lifeguards Association will donate $10.00 for every runner or team who raises $250 or more for the above stated mission of For Pete's Sake.

For more information about For Pete's Sake and to set up a fundraising page go to http://www.takeabreakfromcancer.org.  For Pete's Sake offers personal online fundraising pages to ease the process of raising money.  The pages allow you to make e-mail appeals to friends, family members, and associates. If you have questions, you may e-mail: info@takeabreakfromcancer.org.  

Jersey Shore home owners can also visit For Pete's Sake website at www.takeabreakfromcancer.org to initiate the process of donating their summer home for one week.
