From the left, swim­mers Mark Hur­ley, Danielle Tay­lor and Drew For­ward get ready on the starter blocks to kick­off Po­sei­don Swim Club’s 2015 Swim for Hopes at the Car­bon­ear Pool. The an­nual Swim New­found­land and Labrador event hap­pens at pools across New­found­land and Labrador each spring to raise money for the Dr. H. Bliss Mur­phy Can­cer Care Foun­da­tion. As of early Fri­day evening, to­tals raised in Car­bon­ear were ap­proach­ing $5,000, not in­clud­ing dona­tions made on­line. Hur­ley was among the for­mer Po­sei­don swim­mers tak­ing part this year to hon­our the mem­ory of Sarah Turpin. A for­mer Po­sei­don mem­ber her­self, Turpin died last fall due to a rare form of can­cer. To see more pho­tos from the event last Fri­day, visit www.cb­n­com­pass.ca.
