Join the Villanova Club Swim Team as they 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 clinical trials and cancer research at our Swim Across America labs.

WHAT: Swim Across America has been very special to us as Villanova Club Swimming and we are always so excited to fundraise and support this cause. We hope that our efforts create a lasting impact on this organization so that they can continue funding cancer research.
WHERE: While we are unable to have Swim Across America in the pool this year, we are so excited to still be having this event in the form of an outdoor dryland competition on April 24th! This competition will consist of various events and relays that include plank challenges, crab walk relays, and sprinting races! Each team will be a “family” that includes around 20 club swimming members. We are making big efforts to fundraise before this event and the more money each “family” earns, the bigger the advantage they’ll have in the competition! We will also be encouraging family, friends, and alumni to donate to our page during the event through social media. We can’t wait to participate in this unique event and are looking forward to fundraising for this amazing cause!
HOW TO JOIN: Click the register button in the middle of this page and get your own fundraising page to send out to your friends and family. All swimmers and volunteers must complete the waiver found here and bring to the event check-in. If you are under 18, please bring the waiver signed by a parent or guardian.
FUNDRAISING: We encourage swimmers to each raise at least $100. Many will raise more but if everyone raises $100, our swim could raise thousands to support cancer research, prevention and treatment.
FUNDRAISING INCENTIVES: Every swimmer who participates will receive a Swim Across America cap and tattoos! Raise the amounts below and receive great SAA items for your efforts!
This year we are offering more prizes at more levels! Check out all the great incentive levels below, and see how much money you can help raise in the fight against cancer!
