Nintety percent of pediatric research grants are not funded which is why we're "Make Waves to Fight Cancer". All proceeds from our charity swim will fund pediatric research at John Hopkins All Children's Hospital.

WHO: This charity swim is open to the public. Proceeds will fund pediatric research at John Hopkins All Children's Hospital. There is a limited number of spots.
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. We will offer tips on sighting, buoy turns and safety to help prepare or improve your open water swimming. After that, participants will do a few warm up laps and be put into groups for relays.
Additionally, for every $50 raised a participant will have the opportunity to swim the course for 15-minutes (note: 1 hour maximum).
One lap is approximately 125 yards.
All proceeds from this charity swim benefit Swim Across America our community beneficiary John Hopkins All Children's Hospital. 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.
