SMAC Out Cancer

SMAC Out Cancer Team Mates

Let’s show the Swim Across America SF Bay Open Water Swim teams that our SMAC Out Cancer team can raise lots of money for UCSF’s pediatric cancer programs. While there won't be a CSM Athletic Center Swim Across America pool event, our CSM gym buddies remain committed to supporting this worthy cause!

All donations we raise will be split 50/50 between two wonderful UCSF pediatric cancer programs. The UCSF Pediatric Cancer Research team is searching for better treatment options and cures, while UCSF’s Survivorship Program is developing tools to ensure kids follow-up on key medical tests and checks throughout their lifetimes.

Why support these UCSF programs? Because cancer sucks!  We all know someone who is fighting or has lost a battle with cancer.  It’s especially tragic when a child is diagnosed.  And while many kids can be cured, a lot of them will suffer another significant cancer or major medical issue before age 45 as a result of their cancer treatments.  More cures and treatments with less long term side effects are needed!

How can we help?  By donating to our SMAC Out Cancer team (Donate Now button), fundraising ourselves using SAA My Way (Join our Team button), or sharing our SMAC Out Cancer fundraiser widely with our friends and family.

Any amount donated, large or small, is appreciated.

For questions about how to join our team, where/how to send checks, or additional information on UCSF's pediatric cancer programs, please don’t hesitate to email me at

Thank you for supporting SMAC Out Cancer fundraisers since our first pool event in 2012!
