Join us and Fight Cancer with Swim Across America. Everyone's life has been impacted by cancer which is why we're swimming to help "Make Waves to Fight Cancer" and raise money for cancer research, prevention and treatment.
Proceeds from the swim will support leukemia research at Levine Cancer Institute & Levine Children's Hospital (Atrium Health) in Charlotte, N.C.
