The Children's Healthcare of Atlanta and Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University family is grateful for the partnership with Swim Across America (SAA)! Established in 2013, the SAA Atlanta Open Water Swim has donated more than $1.7 million to the Aflac Cancer & Blood Disorders Center of Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. As well, Swim Across America has named a lab in the Aflac Cancer Center.
We are challenging ourselves by joining over 1,000 swimmers and volunteers, spectators and supporters, as well as Olympians near and far, and swimming in the Atlanta Open Water Swim. Please support us by sponsoring our swim and making a gift. The money donated will go towards leukemia research, led by Dr. Douglas Graham and his clinical research team. This research project supports children as well as adults by hosting Phase 1 leukemia clinical trials at the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University.
You can make a credit card donation by clicking on one of the members of our team (under the team roster section), or send a check to Swim Across America, c/o Nancy Peek, PO Box 1078, Tucker, GA 30085.
Check should be made out to Swim Across America but please include a note mentioning our team or the swimmer you are supporting!
