Orienta Beach Club Pool Swim

Team OBC

In our lifetime, 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer. We joined the SAA community so that, together, we can change that. We are challenging ourselves by swimming and raising as much money to fight cancer as we can. Please support us by sponsoring our swim and making a gift. The money you give will go towards cancer research, prevention and treatment and will make an impact in the fight to find a cure.  Thank you for your generosity and may it lead to a cancer-free world!

The effort of all participants, volunteers and donors truly impacts the fight against cancer. Below is an example of the strides made within the past year.

For the first time, the FDA has approved a drug—KeyTruda—for cancer-based disease genetics rather than the site of a tumor. KeyTruda now can be used for colon, pancreatic, stomach, ovarian and other cancers if genetic testing reveals defects in so-called mismatch repair. The clinical trials for KeyTruda were conducted at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg-Kimmel Institute. Swim Across America was the first organization to believe in the KeyTruda research project and provide grant funding for KeyTruda clinical trials. In total, over $2.6 million in proceeds from SAA—Baltimore have funded clinical trials and lifesaving research at Johns Hopkins.
