Swim Across America raises funds to help find a cure for cancer. This year we will use the Great Neck South Middle School as our venue. This swim is part of the Nassau Chapter of Swim Across America.


WHAT: Swim or Walk to fight cancer with Swim Across America!

At Great Neck South Middle School pool, we will be hosting a Swim Across America (SAA) Pool Swim fundraiser for cancer research.

As you may know, cancer has touched the lives of many of us in one way or another. Whether it's a family member, a friend, or even ourselves, the impact of this disease is profound. That's why we are reaching out to you today with a special request to join us in our mission to find a cure for cancer.

On September 28th, 2024, Great Neck South H.S. Boys and Girls Swim Teams will be partnering with Swim Across America, to raise funds for cancer research. Our goal is to swim a mile to support this important cause, and we need your help to make it happen. We are asking other swim teams to join us in our efforts to raise as much money as we can to help this great cause.

The event will take place at Great Neck South Middle School pool. The event will be divided into different time slots to accommodate swimmers of all ages and skill levels:

  • High school swimmers will swim from 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM.
  • Middle school swimmers and young adults will swim from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM.
  • Open swim/walkers for adults will be from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM.

For community members, individual corporate donors, and non-swim team participants:

Did you know? Every 15 minutes, 50 Americans are diagnosed with CANCER. Perhaps, dedicate your WALK or SWIM that incorporates the 15-theme. SWIMMERS can choose freestyle stroke for 15 minutes; then breaststroke for 15 minutes or at your own pace! WALKERS how about a relay with three of your friends each does 5 laps X three = 15-minute theme. You can walk/swim in honor or memory of a loved one.
