Join the Baltimore Pool Swim at Meadowbrook Aquatic Center to Fight Cancer with Swim Across America. Everyone's life has been impacted by cancer which is why we're swimming to help "Make Waves to Fight Cancer" and raise money for cancer research, prevention and treatment.
Proceeds from the swim will support immunotherapy clinical trials and research at the Swim Across America Lab at the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins.

Join us at the Meadowbrook Aquatic and Fitness Center (5700 Cottonworth Avenue in Baltimore) to help make this year's pool swim to support Swim Across America Lab at Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center the best one yet!
