Nantucket Rising is joining Swim Across America (SAA) - Nantucket to raise money for island friends, neighbors, and family members who are facing cancer. Being part of SAA on Nantucket gives us the opportunity to come together, be active, and most importantly support islanders who are currently meeting this health challenge.
Together we can connect around a really worthwhile cause knowing that the proceeds stay right here at home!
Please join our Nantucket Rising team to help raise funds and/or swim on August 24th, 2019. We would love to have you be part of such a special Nantucket Island event!
And here are a few words from the folks at SWIM Across America - Nantucket who have made all of this possible:
In our lifetime, 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer. Wejoined the SAA community so that, together, we can change that. We are challenging ourselves by swimming in the Nantucket Island Swim and raising money to fight cancer on Nantucket.
With every dollar raised from our Swim, we are changing the game of cancer care on Nantucket and we should all be proud of that. Proceeds directly support the Nantucket Cottage Hospital (NCH) and the Palliative and Supportive Care of Nantucket (PASCON) oncology efforts to fund vital services for local and visiting cancer patients, minimizing their need to travel for appointments, testing and treatment. Our support allows NCH oncology programs to keep more Nantucket residents on-island for their cancer care, providing them a compassionate and caring environment. We help bring world-class oncologists to the island, allowing our patients to receive treatments at home. Through PASCON, our patients and families receive important physical, emotional and spiritual care free of charge.
Please support us by sponsoring our swim and making a gift. The money you give will go towards cancer care on Nantucket. Thank you for your generosity and may it lead to a cancer-free world!
