Team Roethke

We are thrilled to be a part of Swim Across America Nantucket this summer - it is our favorite event of the year!  We are proud to report that Team Roethke has raised over $275,000 since 2012.  Thank you to everyone who has supported Swim Across America and Team Roethke in the past and welcome to our new friends and supporters. 

All money raised stays on-island for cancer treatment and patient care benefitting the Nantucket Cottage Hospital (NCH) and Palliative & Supportive Care of Nantucket (PASCON). Services are performed at the “Swim Across America Infusion Center", designed and dedicated to provide cancer patients with state-of-the-art treatments right here on Nantucket.  Cancer care and support services on Nantucket have continued uninterrupted during the pandemic, and in fact, capacity has increased to allow more patients to receive treatment in the safety of our community hospital rather than traveling off-island to the mainland. 

We ask that you consider making a donation by check or by credit card, made payable to ”Swim Across America – Nantucket”. No amount is too small – whatever you can do will be greatly appreciated.

Simply click on the link here for instructions about how to donate online. If paying by check, please mail your check to Jill Roethke, 14 Bluebird Lane, Nantucket, MA 02554.  

We hope we can count on your support – together, we can indeed continue to Make Waves Against Cancer!
