Swim Like Someone’s Life Depends On It

Participants of all ages and skill levels are invited to choose their open-water distance of .5 miles, 1.5 miles or  3 miles. There are also offer opportunities to volunteer as a kayaker or land volunteer. This event is not a competition, but a fun fundraising event for everyone.

Proceeds will support early detection and innovative clinical trials at the Swim Across America Innovative Clinical Trials Center (ICTC) at Baylor Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center. Swimmers are required to raise at least $500 by event day. Those under 18 or current college undergrad students are required to raise $200 by event day.

A person may elect to swim alone or be part of a team. Many colleagues and college alumni will form teams, or teams may be formed in honor or memory of a loved one. All team members are still required to meet the individual fundraising minimum.
