Head to Jetties Beach on Nantucket tomorrow, August 24th, at 8 am for Swim Across America’s Island Swim. Watch as people of all ages and skill levels swim together in support of those they know and love with cancer.
In what will hopefully become an annual event, the Nantucket community has raised over $150,000 to be used for cancer care on island!
Swim Across America began as a relay swim from Nantucket to Hyannis in 1987 and has evolved to 15 open water swims and dozens of pool swims around the country. Swim Across America has raised over $45 million for cancer research, prevention, and treatment.
Nantucket is thrilled to be included in SAA’s roster of events and will benefit greatly from the funds raised. Nearly all of the money raised will be split between Palliative & Supportive Care of Nantucket and Nantucket Cottage Hospital for cancer care on island.
