Sportsplex is 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 through Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy!

  • Proceeds from the swim will support Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy, the nations only foundation dedicated exclusively to funding cancer gene therapy research.

EVENT INFO
ABOUT THE EVENT

WHAT: Sportsplex Masters Swimming invites members, guests and kids in its advanced swim lessons/pre-team to a swim-a-long to fight against cancer. All funds raised will benefit cancer research & clinical trials at Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy.

WHO: Open to Sportsplex Member Swimmers and their guests, as well as advanced youth swimmers in Sportsplex pre-team/swim lessons. (Swimmers should be able to swim confidently 8 laps or more unassisted).
