The 2nd Annual AACPS Swims for a Cure features the Anne Arundel County High School Swim Teams coming together to 'Make Waves to Fight Cancer' in January 2020. All AACPS high school swimmers are challenging themselves by swimming to raise funds to help fight cancer. All funds raised will support research, prevention and treatment at the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins.
Proceeds from the swim will support immunotherapy clinical trials and research at the Swim Across America Lab at the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins.
