Hi, my name is Eva, and I have participated in the Swim Across America fundraiser for three years now. However, this year will be my longest swim yet -- the 5K! The reason that this is so important is because Swim Across America benefits PEDIATRIC cancer reasearch. Finding a cure is so important because 285 children died today, 285 children will die tommorow, and 285 children will die the next day. On March 25, 2018, one of my swim friends was among the 285. She loved the SAA event. She wanted more than anything to be able to live to see the next open water swim. I wanted more than anything for her to be able to do that. But, cancer had other plans. Cancer took her life. So, I will swim for Grace, and it would mean a lot if you would donate to my page. Any amount is appreciated. Thank you for your support!
SAA granted a record $5.6 million in 2018 that will fund over 30 research projects in 2019. In over three decades, Swim Across America has granted over $80 million dollars that have lead to breakthroughs in immunotherapy, gene therapy, personalized medicine, and new cancer detection methods. It is important that donors know that SAA's grant agreement requires 100% of SAA grants be applied to approved projects and not other things such as overhead and buildings.
