The Gators are Making Waves to 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.
SAA Denver funds benefit four research projects at the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Children's Hospital Colorado. The acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) research project, led by Drs. Amanda Winters, Taizo Nakano, and Craig Forester. The tumor research project, led by Dr. Adam Green. The sepsis biomarker project, led by Dr. Leonora Slatnick. And, new this year, the CAR-T Cell project, led by Dr. Lindsey Murphy and collaborating with Dr. Winters and members of the BMT-Cellular Therapeutics team.

WHAT: Our team works to focus on character development, as well as athletics. This is an opportunity for us to serve others through our sport. In our lifetime, 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer. We joined the SAA community so that, together, we can change that. All funds raised will benefit cancer research & clinical trials at Children's Hopsital Colorado.
The challenge: Swimmers will do as many laps as they are able to complete in one hour!
