Hello, I am Eyal Feldman and every Summer I conduct a lone marathon swim across some large body of water somewhere around the world and raise money through sponsorship for my favorite charities. This is my fourth annual marathon swim for charity and this year, on Sept 18th, I will be swimming a 7-mile (11.25 km) non-stop, round trip marathon swim across the Boulder Basin of Lake Mead from Nevada to Arizona directly across from the world famous Hoover Dam. For this reason my marathon swim is called Hoover Dam This is a Long Swim.

SAGE (Services and Advocacy for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Elders) was established in 1978 and is the world’s oldest and largest non-profit agency dedicated to serving and advocating for LGBT older adults.

I am asking my friends, loved ones or any supporter to sponsor my swim with a donation of at least $30 or more.  We will collect all the funds and distribute them to SAGE. Every donation is eligible for a tax deduction.

Please make checks out to "SAGE." Make sure to include Hoover Dam Swim written in the reference line and mail to:
305 Seventh Ave 15th Floor
New York, NY 10001

Or click the link below to donate online

Gifts made to SAGE also support the National Resource Center on LGBT Aging and will be matched dollar for dollar by a generous grant from the H. van Ameringen Foundation.

"Thank you so much for your faith, love, help and charity to help do more good in this world through marathon swimming."
