In our lifetime, 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer. We joined the SAA community so that, together, we can change that. We are challenging ourselves by swimming in the Sound to Cove Open Water Swim and raising as much money to fight cancer as we can. Please support us by sponsoring our 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!
We are pleased to announce that on August 3rd, 2019 we will be participating in Swim Across America. This is a charity swim that has a variety of swimming options to participate in. You can choose from a half mile, 1 mile, 5K, 10K or Kid's Splash swim in Long Island Sound finishing on the beach at beautiful Morgan Memorial Park in the City of Glen Cove, NY. There is no set amount you must fundraise in order to take part in this event. The fundraising goal they have set of $1,000 sets you at “Wavemaker” status but if you do not reach this status, you can still participate in the event. Please be mindful of the minimums you need to participate in each event.
1/2 mile swimmers: $250 minimum
1 mile swimmers: $500 minimum for adults, $250 minimum for those under 18
5k swimmers: $1,000 minimum
10k swimmers: $5,000 minimum
Family Fun Swim: $100 minimum, $50 for 10 & Under
You are all encouraged and welcome to joining our team, “TRI-ing to Beat Cancer.” This is our first year where we will participate as a team and I would love to get as many involved in this wonderful cause as possible.
