For the past 10 years The Santus Family has been swimming and challenging ourselves in Swim Across America (SAA). This year we will be swimming in support of our family and friends who continue to fight the fight against cancer.
Please support us by sponsoring our swim with a donation towards cancer research, prevention and treatment which will make an impact in the fight to find a cure. Every dollar counts so any amount you can donate is appreciated!
Swim 4 the Cure!
Team Santus - Cathy, Mark, Hannah, Kate, James and Ben
In our lifetime, 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer. I joined the SAA community so that, together, we can change that. Thank you for your generosity and may it lead to a cancer-free world!
Since it’s inception, Swim Across America has grown from a single event in Nantucket, MA, to dozens of events across the U.S. From New York to California, SAA is swimming across America. To date, SAA has raised over $45 million for cancer research, prevention and treatment. Major research beneficiaries include- Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in NYC, Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, Cancer Support Team of Westchester Country, Children’s Hospital of New York-Presbyterian, the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, The Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins, Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, Baylor Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center in Dallas, UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital in San Francisco, Women & Infants Hospital in Rhode Island, Aflac Cancer & Blood Disorders Center at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, The Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy in Stamford, CT, Mercy Medical Center in Long Island, Cold Spring Harbor Lab in NY, Fighting Chance in Long Island, and Children's Hospital & Research Center in Oakland, CA - all recognize SAA a funding source as instrumental to their success. Without Swim Across America, much of their research would be left with no monetary support.
SAA events unite recreational swimmers, competitive swimmers, Masters swimmers, Olympians, kayakers, boaters and hundreds of volunteers all committed to pursuing a cure for this devastating disease. In all, over 5,000 swimmers, ranging in ages from 4 to 78, participate on an annual basis in SAA events.
