Swim For Cancer Banner

Swim for Cancer began in 1973 and has since become a tradition in the Greensboro swimming community.  Each year over 2,000 young swimmers from 26 summer swim programs within the Community Swim Association of Greensboro, gather at their pools to raise money for the American Cancer Society’s Swim for Cancer campaign.  Swim for Cancer is the largest fund-raising swimming event in the country and the American Cancer Society’s longest running fund-raiser of any kind!  Over the years the fund-raising effort has raised close to $4 million in the fight against cancer.  The community has been very generous and swimmers, coaches, and parent volunteers have worked very hard over the years to keep the program alive and growing.  

Your participation allows the American Cancer Society to help people facing cancer today and find cures to end the disease tomorrow. Through sponsorship, and the fundraising efforts of our participants, we will finish the fight against cancer.

Fundraising Tips
