Why Form a Team?
Swim Across America encourages the formation of Tribute Teams to swim in the ‘Memory’ of family or friends that have lost their battle with Cancer, and to ‘Honor’ those loved ones that courageously continue their battle with this terrible disease. Tribute Teams are central to what Swim Across America is all about friends and family joining together to "Make Waves to Fight Cancer".
What better way to celebrate the life of a friend, family member or co-worker that is battling cancer or has succumbed to cancer than to join together and swim in their name.
Teammates will motivate each other to reach out to family and friends to donate to the cause and increase the team's fundraising power.
It is more fun to swim with a group friends and colleagues!
Fellow employees will rally around your team's fundraising efforts, especially if the team swims in the name of a current or former employee.
Your company may support your fundraising efforts with a financial grant.
If your company has a matching gift program, all donations from co-workers will be matched, significantly increasing the impact of your fundraising efforts.

How it Works
Honorary and Memorial Teams
Teams may be formed as corporate, honorary or memorial. Our honorary teams recognize those who have conquered cancer or those who are currently in treatment. Our memorial teams remember those who have lost their battle with cancer.
Companies who would like to sponsor a team can do so for $5,000. Swimmers who are a part of a sponsored team will enter a promotional code given to them by their team captain or will only be required to pay the registration fee. However, additional fundraising is encouraged and much appreciated.
