Calling all swimmers, boaters, paddleboards, and volunteers in general! Are you looking for a great way to volunteer and impact a local cause? We’re putting on our recruiting hats and looking to build out an All-Star Zwim team comprised of simmers and volunteers (both land and sea) to help raise money for Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. This is an amazing organization where over 80% of the proceeds go directly towards research.
Swim Across America - Seattle is entering it's 9th year in Seattle and we are continuing to build momentum towards defeating this dreaded disease. With Zillow's help, we have raised a total of nearly $2.0 million dollars for the specific cancer programs at the SCCA which includes the SAA Cellular Therapy Lab which supports immunotherapy
So what does joining the Zwim team involve? Register with us on our website http://www.swimacrossamerica.org/goto/ZGZwimTeam, you can chose to volunteer or swim – which ever you prefer. We’re looking for volunteers both on land (registration, event set up, logistical support, ect.) or sea (boaters for logistical support/line the swim lanes, kayakers/paddleboards for patrol and safety). For those who wish to swim you can choose your distance from half mile, one mile, two miles and new this year - Pool lap Swim! We’ll do some Zwim Team practices prior to the event, so if you’re putting on your suit and goggles for the first time in a while – we’ll make sure you’re event day ready!
