Swimmer Mitchell Coordinates Successful Caps for Cancer

EL DORADO HILLS, Calif. – Junior swimmer Chloe Mitchell helped raise $2,200 for breast cancer research via her 2014 Caps for Cancer Fundraiser with all the proceeds donated to the UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center Breast Cancer research department.

Mitchell was touched by cancer early in her life when two friends lost their mothers to the disease. She wanted to do more than wear a pink shirt or dye her hair.

“The situation inspired me to do something for women who have or had breast cancer to promote research,” said Mitchell.
