Swim For Kim

Swim For Kim

This is a love story that especially melts the hearts of swimmers.

Pete and Kim Tarnapoll met swimming, got married and enjoyed their life together. Then, Kim was diagnosed with multiple myeloma and is fighting this form of cancer with Pete‘s help.

As Pete says, “Cancer sucks. Plain and simple. Kim’s strength in her fight has been remarkable. So is the care and compassion she’s received from the folks at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute.”

Pete has now taken up Kim’s cause and others who have multiple myeloma through swimming. Pete will be swimming in the Little Red Lighthouse Swim, six miles up the Hudson River in New York on September 25th in Kim’s honor.

I love my wife and I’d swim to the ends of the earth if it meant helping in even the smallest of ways against this biggest of challenges – her fight, and the fight of thousands of others, against multiple myeloma. That’s why I Swim For Kim.”
