More than one in two men and one in three women will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Please join us in making waves to fight cancer on Saturday, August 27 at the inaugural Swim Across America St. Louis Open Water Swim to be held on our very own Alpine Lake. This is a national fundraising event established by former Olympians to raise money for research, treatment, and prevention of all types of cancer. All monies raised will benefit the St. Louis Siteman Cancer Center. We currently need kayakers, pontoon boats with captains, and a gaggle of land volunteers to help make this event a success!
Swim Across America St. Louis is an open water swim event that partners with Olympians to raise money for cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center. Sign up today to swim 1/2 mile, 1.2 or 2.4 miles and have the opportunity to meet Olympians.
