Join us at the Fernley Swimming Pool for a Pool Swim 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 clinical trials and cancer research at our Swim Across America labs.
WHAT: Join us at the Fernley Swimming Pool for a pool swim to support cancer research, prevention and treatment with Swim Across America. This event is open to all, swimmers and non-swimmers alike too! Alexis Hall is the leader who chose to start this swim. Read her personal story below.
In 2015 a dear friend of mine lost her battle to cancer. She had been treated in San Francisco at UCSF. While she was there, she had gone through chemo with a girl fighting the same cancer. After she had passed MJ Hayes messaged me to tell me her story and ask me to swim in the Swim Across America San Francisco Bay swim. Three years of communication and friendship through Facebook passed before I could finally tell her I was able to swim in the ocean September 22, 2018. As I was swimming in the ocean for the first time, my Nana was being admitted into the hospital for the last time. In October she lost her battle to cancer. After this swim I was so inspired and wanted to hold an event of my own. I have been a swimmer my whole life and the Fernley Swimming pool has been my second home for many years. After swimming close to two miles in the ocean I realized this was something I always wanted to be a part of.
