Swim Across America, Inc., (SAA) is dedicated to raising money and awareness for cancer research, prevention and treatment through swimming- related events. With the help of hundreds of volunteers nationwide and past and current Olympians, SAA is helping find a cure for cancer through athleticism, community outreach and direct service.  Swim Across America began as a grassroots organization with events developing organically.  Now, those events raise hundreds of thousands of dollars – and money raised is still given to local beneficiaries.
