Welcome to Team Indiana!
Over the course of our lifetime, cancer will touch each and every one of us. As a community, we are uniting to swim for these family members, friends, and teammates who have battled cancer. This year, Indiana Swimming is partnering with Swim Across America to join a national effort to raise money to fight cancer. Together, Indiana’s clubs and college teams will participate in the Chicago Open Water Swim. Chicago has a fundraising goal of $365,000 and Team Indiana would like to lead the effort! All proceeds are donated to the Swim Across America cancer research laboratory at Rush University Medical Center. To name a few highlights of this summer’s event, there will be a Team Indiana swimmer’s social event, prizes for individual and team fundraising, and many Olympians, present and past. Information about how to register for this summer’s open water swim in Chicago as a member of Team Indiana is listed below.
