"The members of TEAM HOPE are committed to the support of our families and friends who are engaged in the struggle against cancer. We have dedicated ourselves to the memory of those whose battle is over and who are now at peace."
On Saturday, August 5th, the swimmers of TEAM HOPE will participate in a 1/2 mile,1 mile, 5k or 10k swim in Long Island Sound to "Make Waves to Fight Cancer." Now entering its 14th year, TEAM HOPE has raised over $1,000,000 for cancer research, treatment and prevention. Our goal this year is to raise $100,000. To do so, we must raise at least $36,000 with this one of our three swims.
The proceeds of our swim will support cancer research at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center-SAA Laboratory, the Children's Hospital at Montefiore, the Feinstein Institute and the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. Also, we are supporting Fighting Chance, a free Cancer Resource and Counseling Center in Sag Harbor, NY and the MIRACLE Pavilion at Mercy Medical Center in Rockville Centre, NY.
If you wish to make a tax-deductible contribution to support our efforts, please click on a swimmer's name and follow the instructions to make a secure credit card donation. Or, if you prefer, you can send your check, made out to Swim Across America, to the swimmer you are sponsoring. Your contribution will help us achieve our individual and team goals.
