Swim Across America (SAA) Long Island Sound is a Westchester-based non-profit that enters its 23rd season with nine outstanding swim events. For the past two decades, these pool and sound swims have raised more than $12,000,000 in the fight against cancer. Proceeds from these swims go to the Cancer Support Team serving Westchester County, the Tommy Palazzo Fellowship at Columbia University, the Morgan Stanley Childrens Hospital of New York-Presbyterian Medical Center, the DeMatteo Research and Swim Across America Laboratories at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Thanks to Swim Across America support, Sloan-Kettering, in 2011, after many years of research, introduced a successful, breakthrough drug therapy named Yervoy, for the treatment of advanced melanoma.
Consider either sponsoring a swimmer or swimming yourself. Help us spread the word. Thank you!
