Meet Sarah

Our founding Marilyn!

Like so many others, founding Marilyn Sarah Tinney, first turned to fundraising after a personal experience. Her mother back in the US was diagnosed in 2006, and passed away in 2007. From the first day of her mother’s diagnosis, Sarah pledged to help raise money to cure cancer in her honour and that’s how the Marilyn Jetty Swim was born.
