Join the South Orange Dolphins in a Pool Swim 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.


WHAT: We started our “swimming laps for a cause” 11 years ago in order to support one of the moms on the Dolphins swim team, Monet Caputy Armenia, who was struggling with metastatic breast cancer. Monet passed away that summer, but will always be in our hearts. She was a phenomenal person: brave, dedicated to her family and friends, and had a great sense of humor and wit. To honor the memory of Monet, and carry on the tradition of giving back, we hold a yearly Monet Caputy Armenia Swim for a Cause.

This event is closed to South Orange Dolphins only.

WHEN: July 12, 2024 from 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM

WHERE: South Orange Pool
South Orange, NJ 07079

SWIM OPTIONS: There is no set distance but rather just swimming as many laps as you can!
