Sydney is swimming from Bridge to Bridge to raise money for Glide Church! How can you help change the world?

Swimmers at the Golden Gate Bridge race – Picture of Water World Swim, San Francisco. Sydney’s swim will be similar to this!

My name is Sydney and I have been training for a 10k swim across the Bay, from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Bay Bridge, for months. I will be doing my swim on the 18th to raise money for Glide Memorial Church and the incredible work they do, which is becoming increasingly important for our city.  CLICK HERE TO DONATE!

Glide is a church and social justice organization serving the Tenderloin in San Francisco, with a legacy of unconditional love and a mission to break cycles of poverty and marginalization. They provide 3 meals a day, church service, housing, health clinic testing, legal help, and many more vital community resources. During COVID-19, Glide has increased meal distribution, online classes, and added Coronavirus screenings to their integrated services, working to meet the growing needs of San Francisco residents in this challenging time. This is an organization at which I have been volunteering for years and really makes an impact on the lives of some of the most vulnerable populations in SF.

Sydney Roberts is organizing this fundraiser on behalf of Board of Trustees of the Glide Foundation.  Donations are 100% tax deductible. Any contribution you can make would be hugely beneficial to our community and greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Click here to donate through the GoFundme campaign! Are you willing to swim to raise money? Are you willing to donate to someone else’s swim? Help Sydney change the world by making a difference in her own city!
