This is the seventh year that the Oakland campus of UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital is teaming up to support Julie Saba's lab at CHORI and the UCSF Cancer Survivor's program.
This is the most amazing swim you will ever do! See the Golden Gate from the water while heading toward the Palace of Fine Arts with so many who are doing their part to raise money for cancer research in children. This year we are hoping to have a bigger team than ever. Let's make waves to stop cancer!
We have to recruit lots of swimmers - hospital affiliated or not. So talk to your fellow pool mates and get in the water! Let's get doctors, nurses, staff, friends, families, and even patients together. We will be at Aquatic Park or Chrissy Field weekends a couple times per month starting in June to get ready.
