Welcome to the annual Team Relay Challenge in the Boston Area. On April 9th, club swimmers, college swimmers, masters swimmers, and recreational swimmers will all dive in for a 2 hour relay challenge with their teammates. Each team will be striving to swim the farthest and raise the most to find a cure for cancer. The event will benefit the Perini Quality of Life Clinic at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Mass General Hospital for Children Cancer Center.

EVENT INFO
ABOUT THE EVENT

WHAT: Online registration for the Team Relay Challenge is now closed. You can still join us on the morning of the swim! Please bring $25 and arrive early! The annual Team Relay Challenge brings swimmers of all ages together to swim the farthest they can in 2 hours while raising money to defeat cancer and support Swim Across America! Swimmer registration fee is $25 and each team agrees to raise a minimum of $3,000. Teams will swim for two hours, with only one swimmer for each team in the water at any given time. There will be no limit to how long or far each team participating can swim. Teams may have as many or as few participants as they want. For every $100 your team raises over the $3,000 fundraising minimum, you will be rewarded a bonus of 100 yards.

FUNDRAISING: There is no fundraising minimum per swimmer. We ask that each team swimming raises a combined $3,000.  There is no limit to how many people you can have on a team. 

AWARDS: Awards will be given to the team in each division that swims the farthest. Keep in mind that the teams that raise over $3,000 get extra yards added on. Even if your team isn't the fastest - you could still swim the furthest!
