The Swedish Fish (SWED) is an adult masters swim team with over 75 members ranging in age and level. Our mission is "building relationships through swimming", and that is precisely what we do. We swim together and we have fun together. And we care about one another. Which is why Swim Across America resonates so deeply with our team.
Cancer has touched far too many of our lives. Some of us are swimming in memory of friends and loved ones we have lost; some are swimming for people we care about who are currently battling this terrible disease. We are all swimming because we believe swimming is awesome, and that cancer sucks. We want to do our small part in the greater fight to kick cancer’s butt.
Last year we had 20 swimmers participate, and collectively we raised over $15,000. We hope to top that this year. Please consider supporting our team.
