Teams may be formed as corporate, honorary or memorial. Our honorary

currently in treatment. Our memorial teams remember those who have lost
their battle with cancer.
Our corprorate teams reperesent the swimmers place of employment. All
teams are inspirational and rewarding for all of us involved with Swim Across America. Through swimming events such as ours, Teams clearly demonstrate our commitment to find a cure.

the Boston business community to join the Swim Across America in its fight against cancer.

If you wish to organize a team, please register to swim and create a
new team. You will have a chance to create a team page on which you can
tell your team's story, share photos, and fundraise.
