Instead of the usual stories of people whose lives were changed by swimming, this month I’m sharing the story of swimmers who changing the lives of others. Swim Across America hosts charity open water swims in 20 cities across the US (as well as several pool swims). The money raised by those events goes to support cancer research and clinical trials in those cities.
I had the privilege of speaking with a handful of Olympians who donate their time to support the swim in San Francisco Bay. Once you hear their stories, you’ll be ready to dive in.
You’ll also hear from two doctors whose programs benefit from that swim. They’ll be highlighted in greater depth in the next episode.
For now, enjoy listening and consider supporting this great organization.
