Jim Soroka Water Safety Fund Established at Memorial Hospital

July 12, 2018

A community fund has been created by loving friends and family to memorialize Jim Soroka, local builder and elite athlete who passed in 2016. Jim was an Ironman triathlete and was in training at the time of his death. Passionate about health and fitness, Jim loved water sports, was an avid surfer, competitive swimmer, biker and runner. He believed everyone should be safe in and around the water. The Jim Soroka Fund at Memorial Hospital will set up funding for community benefit for water safety education, swimming instruction and related efforts in the Mt Washington Valley. To apply for funding, please download an application at https://tinyurl.com/sorokafund or contact Ethnee Garner at egarner@memorialhospitalnh.org. To make a donation to the fund, please contact Rachel Andrews Damon at rdamon@memorialhospitalnh.org.
