Teams can also be formed to swim in honor or in memory of an individual. Teams must have at least 3 swimmers and must raise at least $900. Any swimmer may be part of a team, no matter in which distance he/she elects to swim.
In our experience all participants find it gratifying to make an impact in this fight against cancer by using their swimming abilities. This swim is designed to include all types of swimmers from Master Swimmers, Olympians, recreational swimmers, and competitive swim club swimmers.
Children age 11 and under are welcome to take part in a 50m freestyle open water swim on event day. Click here to learn more!
