Event Description

MAKE WAVES TO FIGHT CANCER Swim Across America Fairfield County (formerly the Greenwich-Stamford Swim) may have a new name, but the Swim and all of its fund-raising activities still have the same main goal: to raise funds in the fight against cancer. This year’s open water swim is Saturday, June 22, and will be held on the border of Greenwich and Stamford in Long Island Sound at the headquarters of the Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy (ACGT), the Swim’s beneficiary. There are three different swim lengths available: a half-mile, one-and-a-half mile and a three mile swim. Boaters, kayakers, paddle boarders and land volunteers participate in this inspirational event with close to 300 swimmers and 100 volunteers. Bring the whole family for food and fun! To register, visit swimacrossamerica.org/fairfieldcounty.
