Join Long Island Swimming & LIAC in a pool swim to support Swim Across America! Swim Across America raises funds to help find a cure for cancer. This swim is a part of the Nassau / Suffolk Chapter of Swim Across America. Since their inception in 2001, the Nassau / Suffolk Chapter of Swim Across America has donated over $5,100,000 to cancer research, prevention and treatment.
Proceeds from the swim will support immunotherapy research at the Swim Across America Laboratory at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, lung cancer clinical trials at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, pediatric brain cancer research at the Feinstein Institute of North Shore and pediatric oncology at the University of Texas MD Anderson Children's Cancer Hospital.
