St. Vincent’s Swim Across the Sound Goes Virtual

St. Vincent's SWIM Across the Sound is a charitable, grass roots organization run by St. Vincent's Medical Center Foundation. Celebrating its 33rd year in 2020, the SWIM has a unique niche, providing cancer education, screening and prevention programs at low- or no-cost for the underserved. In addition, the SWIM helps individual cancer patients on a case-by-case basis with specific needs, such as the funding of wigs and prostheses, medication assistance, free transportation to treatments and appointments, day-care scholarships and support groups. The Foundation directs and coordinates all of the operations of the SWIM, including fundraising and charity events

The 2020 Swim Across the Sound is a virtual race for participants to complete a full 15.5 mile challenge, the distance of the live event each year across Long Island Sound between Danfords and Captain’s Cove. It can be done in one day or over several days during the month of August. In its 33rd year, the event raises money and support for the thousands of people who are battling cancer.
