35th Annual Swim Across the Sound

August 6, 2022

Each summer, swimmers cross the Long Island Sound from Port Jefferson to Captain’s Cove Seaport in Bridgeport. The 2021 Swim raised $250K to support oncology programs and provide financial assistance to cancer patients and their families so they can focus on their health and healing.
