We’re one month away from Swim Across America. For you procrastinators, or those who have been hesitant to take the plunge, it’s not too late to sign up! This Lake Washington open water swim event will take place Sept. 12 at Luther Burbank Park on Mercer Island. SCCA is the event beneficiary as participants fundraise and swim distances ranging from a 1/2-mile to 2 miles. There is also a Kid’s Splash for children 11 and younger who are able to swim 50 meters.
What if swimming isn’t your forté? Not a problem! You don’t have to be a swimmer to volunteer for the event. More information on volunteering can be found here. To date, Swim Across America has raised more than $1,000,000 for cancer research, prevention, and treatment at SCCA since the event started in 2009.
