Why Form a Team?

Swim Across America encourages the formation of Tribute Teams to swim in the ‘Memory’ of family or friends that have lost their battle with Cancer, and to ‘Honor’ those loved ones that courageously continue their battle with this terrible disease.  Tribute Teams are central to what Swim Across America is all about friends and family joining together to "make waves to Fight Cancer".

What better way to celebrate the life of a friend, family member or co-worker that is battling cancer or has succumbed to cancer than to join together and swim in their name.

Teammates will motivate each other to reach out to family and friends to donate to the cause and increase the team's fundraising power.

It is more fun to swim with a group friends and colleagues!

Fellow employees will rally around your team's fundraising efforts, especially if the team swims in the name of a current or former employee.

Your company may support your fundraising efforts with a financial grant.

If your company has a matching gift program, all donations from co-workers will be matched, significantly increasing the impact of your fundraising efforts.

How it Works

  • Creating a team online - Each team selects a team captain who will register for the swim online and "create a team" during the online registration process. The process will allow the captain to create an online team fundraising page.
  • Joining a team online - Team members can visit the team page to join the team, or click any "register to swim" link and select to "join a team" during the registration process.
  • Team Fundraising - All money raised by team members is credited to the team account. This includes company grants and matching gifts.

Honorary and Memorial Teams

Teams may be formed as corporate, honorary or memorial.  Our honorary teams recognize those who have conquered cancer or those who are currently in treatment.  Our memorial teams remember those who have lost their battle with cancer.
