Team Transplant

"Team BMT" (aka "Team Transplant"), Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC),  will participate for its 14th consecutive summer on Saturday morning, July 30, 2022, in Swim Across America's 30th ANNIVERSARY Long Island Sound event.  Since its inception, SWIM has nationally raised over $100 million, which has supported early phase cancer research and clinical trials. This in turn has led to an estimated $200 million in new funding from other sources, e.,g., Natl Cancer Institute/Natl Institutes of Health (NCI/NIH) and private philanthropic sources...always with enormous thanks to YOU,   All funds that "Team BMT (aka Team Transplant-MSKCC)" raises will go directly to MSKCC, with your support specifically targeted to the Adult Bone Marrow Transplant Program.  These funds support research that ensures the successful use of transplantation to cure patients with leukemia, lymphoma, multiple myeloma, and other cancers of the blood and bone marrow.  It is especially rewarding to all of us that MSKCC's transplant efforts have allowed so many patients to return to their usual livelihoods that predated their cancer diagnoses and treatments.

Please mail any checks directly to Swim Across America, P.O.

If you are using a dedicated charitable giving account, Swim Across America's tax ID# is 22-324-8256. You will also need to have that check sent directly to Swim Across America, P.O. Box 217, Larchmont, NY 10538, but again be sure that it is noted for "MSKCC Team BMT/SWIMMER'S NAME".

Don't forget about Employer Matching Gift programs. In such cases employers will also need to make checks payable to Swim Across America and use SWIM's tax ID# and Larchmont mailing address above. Once again, please be sure that the check is directed to "MSKCC Team Transplant/SWIMMER'S NAME".

Sorry to be a broken record about the check memo line, but it's the only way that SWIM can keep track of the donations' designated beneficiaries.

All donations of $250.00 or more will be acknowledged per IRS guildelines. For amounts less than $250, your charge record or cancelled check is sufficient for tax purposes.

Thank you for your help with this VERY worthwhile cause.

Sincerely,
