2024 LIS - Long Island Sound Open Water Swim

Team BeachBum

Our stories are personal...and our reasons are varied...but we all have the same goal! Making Waves to Fight Cancer!

An estimated 40% of Americans will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lifetime?  Meanwhile, the National Cancer Institute funding for investigative research and clinical trials has decreased by 25% over the past ten years.  This benefit swim is critical because the money raised supports early-stage cancer research and clinical trials. The researchers we are funding are the next generation of cancer pioneers.  The medical breakthroughs that we are supporting saves lives.

This is Team BeachBum's 15th year and we have raised over $440,000.  But there is still more work to be done! Please support us by sponsoring us 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!
