LEXINGTON, Va. - The VMI swimming and diving and women's water polo programs participated in the 12th annual Ted Mullin "Leave it in the Pool" Hour of Power Relay for Sarcoma Research earlier this week. The event is sponsored by the Carleton College swimming and diving teams and honors those who are fighting or have succumbed to cancer, including former Carleton swimmer Edward H. "Ted" Mullin, who passed away from synovial sarcoma, a rare soft-tissue cancer, in September 2006.

The annual swim relay, which now includes dryland teams as well, has grown from 15 teams in its first year to over 160 teams and more than 7,500 athletes across the nation and the world in recent years. Participating swim teams engage in continuous relays of any stroke for a full hour of all-out swimming. Dryland teams engage in their particular sport non-stop for a full hour.

In the event’s first 11 years, participating teams have raised $670,000 to support research at the University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children’s Hospital into the causes and treatment of sarcoma and other rare pediatric cancers. From all sources, the Ted Mullin Fund has now raised over $1 million.
