Last year the 2020 San Francisco Bay Open Water Swim was cancelled due to COVID-19 but this year, we're vaccinated and we're back!
This will mark the 10th year for "UCSF Team Newborn" taking part in the SAA SF Bay Swim to help raise awareness and funds to fight childhood cancer.
We are all friends of the UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Intensive Care Nursery (ICN) with the common goal of defeating childhood cancers. Almost 25% of all pediatric malignancies are diagnosed in the first year of life.
Please support us in whatever way you can. These funds go directly to benefit the UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Pediatric Cancer research in Oakland and the Survivors of Childhood Cancer Clinic at UCSF Mission Bay in San Francisco.
To make a donation from this page, select anyone from the Team Roster to be taken to their personal page. From there, select "Donate Now" to make a contribution. You may also send a check to Swim Across America, c/o Anthony DuComb, 1684 8th Ave, San Francisco, CA 94122.
Thank you again for your generous support,
Tom Shimotake, MD
