Featured Description (from the owner)
In recognition of these challenging times and the need to keep swimmers, volunteers, boaters and supporters safe due to COVID-19, Swim Across America Fairfield County has pivoted to a virtual fundraising event — a Swim Across America Fairfield County Personal Challenge 2020. While these times are filled with uncertainty, one thing remains true: groundbreaking cancer research still needs funding to save lives. That’s where Swim Across America Fairfield County comes in to help #makewaves to #fightcancer by raising crucial funds to supports its local Fairfield County beneficiary, the Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy (ACGT). Registration is only $25 per person and can be made at swimacrossamerica.org/fc.
The Swim Across America “Personal Challenge” can include walking, running, playing golf, kayaking, biking, dancing, climbing, volunteering, and of course, swimming. Any activity counts! Every age can participate — as an individual, team or family. The Swim Across America Fairfield County Personal Challenge 2020 event starts immediately and runs all summer. Each participant will receive a 2020 commemorative T-shirt, which will be available for pick-up later in the summer at a “socially-distanced” event. Progress of each participant’s Personal Challenge will be tracked and miles or hours logged online which will take participants “Coast to Coast” across the United States on a virtual map, showing how much progress is being made.
