Swimming for the Cure
Since 2011, Swim Across America-Dallas, Held June 11 and 12, has provided a rare opportunity for cancer survivors, former members of the U.S. Olympic Swim Team and hundreds of swimmers of all skill levels to make an impact on cancer research locally. Swim Across America-Dallas has contributed a total of $1.8 million so far to the Baylor Health Care System Foundation for the clinical trials center.
Open water swims take place June 11 at The Harbor at Lake Ray Hubbard, featuring the Iron Distance (2.4 miles), one-mile and half-mile distances. The family-friendly pool swims take place June 12 at Baylor Tom Landry Fitness Center for individuals and relay teams.
The swim raises funds for the Swim Across America Innovative Clinical Trials Center on the campus of Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas. Swimmers can participate in the open water swim at Lake Ray Hubbard or the pool swim.
