Join us at the Selby Aquatic Center as we 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 the Swim Across America Lab focusing on immunotherapy clinical trials and cancer research as well as the Adolescent & Young Adult Program addressing the unique concerns of young adults with cancer at Moffitt Cancer Center and pediatric cancer research at Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital.
Registrations: 25 Goal: 5000
WHO: This charity swim is open to the public. There is a limited number of spots so register and help meet our fundraising goal.
WHAT: This charity swim is ideal for open water beginners and those wanting to practice open water swimming. The lane lines will be removed and a buoy will be set in each corner simulating an open water course in the 50-meter tank!
One lap is approximately 125 yards. Every $50 raised allows you to swim four laps (approximately 500 yards).
The day of charity swim, we will host a clinic sharing tips on sighting, buoy turns and safety to help prepare or improve your open water swimming.
All proceeds from this charity swim benefit Swim Across America whose mission is to fund cancer research. There is a $25 tax deductible self-donation to participate in this activity. All participants will receive a t-shirt and other giveaways.
Swim Across America provides insurance and so no other memberships are required.
