In 2015, Emily swam the length of 30 lakes in Northwest Montana in 60 days covering over 90 miles of swimming. These swims raised $10,000 for 15 year old Lily and 6 year old Hayden. Lily required a bone marrow transplant for a rare blood disorder. The Enduring Waves Foundation assisted Lily's family with travel expenses for her treatment. Hayden has gross motor delays and is at this point non-communicative. The Enduring Waves Foundation helped the family purchase several assistive devices and paid for speech therapy.
