2024 Seattle Open Water Swim

Team Benoit

Hi there,

 April 24th marks the 7th anniversary of losing my oldest son Matthew to cancer. Over nine years ago it was my wife of 30 years Kalany.
Team Benoit was formed by Matthew and his friends to support Seattle Cancer Care Alliance now a part of Fred Hutch Cancer Center through participating in this swim. Since Matthews death the team he started has raised over $700,000.
Please consider joining our team to help raise funds towards cancer research here locally. If you have never swam in a lake I think it is time. We have had many people who never thought they would do it and join us and enjoy it immensely. We promise a great morning swim and a great celebration after.
