This summer I will be embarking on the journey of a lifetime, biking across the United States to support the Boys & Girls Clubs of Providence swim program and to establish an Aquatics Endowment. This critical funding will continue to provide funding for swim lessons, support for our swim program, and swim scholarships.
Whether you are helping provide kids with swimming lessons – teaching life-saving skills to our beginner swimmers, or helping provide an area to practice for our more experienced swimmers, together, we are helping teach our kids important life skills in a safe and nurturing environment.

You Gotta Have A Goal
Why do we do the things we do? I’ve found in looking back over the course of my life that the times when I’ve been the most engaged and energized have been the times I’ve been focused on a major goal. As a youth it was school and sports, getting to the next level. In college more studies and the quest for a national lacrosse championship. Things get more difficult once school is done, it’s harder to juggle earning a living and making your way in the world with major projects. With that being said the reward is that much better when you achieve your goals.
The list is long, law school, running a marathon, passing the Bar exam, reading the hundred greatest novels of the 20th century, playing competitive golf, starting my own law firm. The goals get bigger and the satisfaction gets greater. Lately, I’ve found myself without a challenge and growing restless. Then one night like a bolt of lightning the next goal comes sharply into focus: bike across the United States. I’ve always wanted to go cross country just never figured I would do it on a bike.
