The SAA, Chicago swim is a fantastic event that takes off from the Ohio Street Beach into Lake Michigan every summer. This will be the 20th anniversary year of the event. You have the option of swimming a 1/2 Mile, 1 Mile, 1.5 Mile, or 3 Mile swim to raise money for the Rush University Cancer Center. In 2013, over 250 swimmers gathered to raise more than $400,000 for our local beneficiary. We thank you for your generousity and ask you to join us this year to "Make Waves to Fight Cancer" on July 26th. Let's make 2014 even bigger and better!
