STAMFORD, CT - The seventh annual SWIM ACROSS AMERICA GREENWICH - STAMFORD SWIM, will be held SATURDAY, JUNE 22, 2013, and is making a big splash for cancer research, prevention and treatment. Swimmers of all levels are invited to participate. Swim Across America holds numerous swimming events throughout the United States each year. This is the seventh anniversary of the Greenwich–Stamford Swim, that has generated $1.4 million in donations through the years specifically for the local beneficiary, the Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy (ACGT). ACGT is the nation’s only non-profit organization dedicated exclusively to funding cancer cell and gene therapy research. ACGT is headquartered on the Greenwich/Stamford border and serves as the start and finish line for the Swim. There will be four options for swimmers: a half-mile course, a 1.5 mile course, a 3-mile or 5-mile challenge. Participants must register at www.swimacrossamerica.org/greenwich by clicking on the Greenwich–Stamford Swim link.
