Description

This is our annual charitable fundraiser.

 

We are extremely excited to be hosting a SWIM ACROSS AMERICA event again this year!
 
The date is April 29, 2018.
 

WHAT: A fundraiser for the San Mateo community! Join us for a day full of fun! Participate in running, dance or yoga events to help Swim Across America raise money to benefit cancer research at USCF Benioff Children's Hospitals.

WHEN: April 29, 2018, events scheduled from 7:30 - 11 am

WHERE: San Mateo Athletic Club
1700 West Hillsdale Blvd., Bldg. 5
San Mateo, CA 94402

TIMELINE: Please see below.

SWIM ACROSS AMERICA donations have helped tremendously in the research for all cancer cures. Last year the San Mateo Athletic Club, as a whole, raised just under $100,000.  We at SMAC were very proud of that. All of this money went directly to supporting cancer research at UCSF Benihoff & Children's Hospital in Oakland.   This year our goal is $85,000  and hope that you can help us in our effort.
 
Parents - we also have lots of land and water events for you:
5k Run, Dance Marathon, Aqua Aerobics, 1/2 mile swim, or a 1 mile swim!!
Join us - the whole family can participate!
 
So many of us have been affected in some way by the devastation of cancer and participating in SWIM ACROSS AMERICA is one way to show our support. This year we will be making an all- out effort, as a team, to raise as much as we can. 
 
Below is a step by step process to join the BULLDOG SWIM CLUB ‘team’ as we do our part to cure cancer. I hope you can be part of the effort on April 29th . If you can't make it on April 29th you can still donate to our team or raise funds as a volunteer.
 
While there is a general goal for participants to raise $100.  There is no fee to join an event on April 29th and no minimum fees to raise.  We want your participation and are grateful for anything you can give.
