Batesville Athletes Swimming For A Cure

first_imgOn November 17, 2018, Batesville High School will join thousands of athletes from collegiate, high school, and club teams across the nation and abroad to celebrate the 13th Annual Ted Mullin “Leave it in the Pool” Hour of Power Relay for Sarcoma Research, sponsored by Carleton College swimming and diving teams.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 annual swim relay, which now includes dryland teams as well, has grown from 15 teams in its first year to over 160 teams and more than 8,000 athletes across the nation and the world in recent years. Participating swim teams engage in continuous relays of any stroke for a full hour of all-out swimming. Dryland teams engage in their particular sport non-stop for a full hour.In the event’s first 12 years, participating teams have raised $770,000 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. From all sources, the Ted Mullin Fund has now raised over $1.25 million.The funds have 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.  Each summer, the University also hosts Ted Mullin Fund scholars, offering four Hour of Power collegiate participants an opportunity to advance their interest in science and cancer biology by spending 10 weeks in a laboratory under the mentorship of a pediatric cancer researcher within the Section of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology at the University of Chicago Medicine.As of November 11, 2018, over 120 teams including an estimated 5,500 athletes have registered for the 2018-19 Ted Mullin Hour of Power Relay. Registration is still underway and more teams are expected to take part.Interested collegiate, high school and club teams are invited to register for the 2018-19 Hour of Power and find more information at http://go.carleton.edu/HourOfPower.  You can also contact Carleton College head coach Andy Clark at [email protected] or Rick Mullin at [email protected] you are interested in donating to the Ted Mullin Fund go to: https://cart.fjc.org/product/view/fjc1508424691/214 to donate online.last_img read more
