LWC Swimming hosts Hour of Power Relay for Cancer Research
You can make a donation online at www.tedmullinfund.org.
The Lindsey Wilson men and women's swim teams took to the Holloway Center Natatorium pool on Monday, November 28, 2022, joining thousands of fellow student-athletes across the nation to celebrate the 17th Annual Ted Mullin "Leave it in the Pool" Hour of Power Relay for Sarcoma Research, sponsored by the Carleton College swimming and diving teams.
Despite a fierce rivalry, joining the Blue Raiders at the Holloway Center Natatorium was the Campbellsville University men and women's swim team.
The objective of the "Leave it in the Pool" practice is to participate in continuous relays of any stroke for one-straight hour, with the objective of keeping all relays in each lane on the same length.
The Hour of Power event honors those who are fighting or have succumbed to cancer, including former Carleton swimmer Edward H. "Ted" Mullin, who passed away from synovial sarcoma, a rare soft-tissue cancer, in September 2006.
The funds go to support research at the University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital into the causes and treatment of sarcoma and other rare pediatric cancers.
The initiative has been used for a variety of projects that evaluate the genetic basis of sarcomas, the identification of novel markers of disease diagnosis or progression, and the development of new small molecule and cell therapies for resistant disease. Money raised acts as seed funding for the University of Chicago Medicine's (UCM) pediatric cancer research program. The Ted Mullin Fund has supported research into novel chemotherapy/biology agents, new ways to administer chemotherapy, techniques to visualize more accurately the tumor response in the patient, novel genomics strategies to identify high-risk sarcoma patients, molecular techniques to personalize therapy to maximize benefit while reducing treatment-related toxicity, and treatments for metastatic or resistant disease that use the patient's own immune system to attack residual tumors.
