Swim Across America is a 501c (3) non-profit organization that focuses on raising money and awareness for cancer research, prevention and treatment.  2006 will mark its 20th anniversary. During that time, they have grown from a single event in Nantucket, MA., to ten events in four major metropolitan areas. To date they have raised over $13.5 million. Their major research beneficiaries: Dana-Farber Cancer Institute – Boston, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center - New York, Cardinal Bernardin Cancer Institute – Chicago and Children’s Hospital of New York – recognize Swim Across America funding as instrumental to their success. Without Swim Across America, much of their research would go unfunded.

Swim Across America is unique in many ways. On one hand, their swims are high profile events that attract Olympic legends, hopefuls, rising swimming stars and recreational swimmers who all raise money and awareness for cancer research. On the other hand, it is a grassroots fundraising event that belongs just as much to the sponsors and volunteers as it does to the swimmers. Either way, Swim Across America enables everyone involved to experience the thrill of victory because everybody wins when the race is to find a cure for cancer. By supporting current work on the front lines of cancer research, you can help pave the way towards innovative treatments for tomorrow.
