This is the Begg Family's 18th year participating in Swim Across America events. Since last summer, the money raised by Swim Across America has made major impacts on the quest to cure cancer.
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. I am challenging myself by swimming in the Long Island Sound Open Water Swim and raising as much money to fight cancer as I can. Please support me by sponsoring my swim and making a gift. The money you give will go towards cancer research, prevention and treatment and will make an impact in the fight to find a cure. Thank you for your generosity and may it lead to a cancer-free world!

Checks should be made out to Swim Across America but please include a note mentioning my name as the swimmer you are supporting!
