‘Swim Across America’ raises money for cancer research in the Lowcountry
CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Around 100 swimmers hopped into the sea at the Kiawah Island Golf Resort on Sunday to help raise money in the fight against cancer.
The swimmers included members of the community, volunteers and several Olympic swimmers, all taking a dip at the Night Heron Park Sunday morning.
Organizers with Swim Across America, a non-profit focused on raising money for cancer research, say $55,000 has been raised so far. That money will go to MUSC’s Hollings Cancer Center for research and clinical trials.
