FUN SWIM OPTIONS: To ring in 2018 and honor a friend or loved one who has battled cancer, choose from the following participation levels:

  • 200 yard Kid's Splash
  • 1/2 mile swim
  • 1 mile swim
  • Treasure Hunt: Rocks with different point values will be scattered across the pool floor. We will assign participants to teams and on “go”, players jump one at a time into the pool and race to collect the items. Players can only collect one item at a time and must deposit them into their team’s basket. Team members take turns hunting for treasure. Once all of the items have been collected, we will add up the point values. The team with the highest valued collection wins special prizes!

***Participants in the Kid’s Splash, 1/2 Mile and 1 Mile Swims can also participate in the Treasure Hunt Event.

FUNDRAISING: We ask that each swimmer raise at least $100. Many will raise more but if everyone raises $100, our swim could raise thousands to support cancer research, prevention and treatment.

FUNDRAISING INCENTIVES: Every swimmer who participates will receive a Swim Across America cap, bracelet and tattoos! Raise the amounts below and receive great SAA items for your efforts!

This year we are offering more prizes at more levels! Check out all the great incentive levels below, and see how much money you can help raise in the fight against cancer!
