Thank you for your interest in volunteering as part of the volunteer team during the 25th Annual St. Vincent’s SWIM Across the Sound Marathon scheduled for Saturday, July 28, 2012!

A fundraising event that started in 1987, the St. Vincent 's SWIM Across the Sound raised millions of dollars over the years, more than $400,000 in 2011 alone. All the funds raised benefit the SWIM’s 40 cancer services which provide cancer screening, education, prevention and support programs right here in our community as well as provide financial assistance to cancer patients and their families in need.

Approximately 250 swimmers participate each year in the solo, two-person relay, team relay and university challenge categories. To help the event run safely and smoothly volunteers are needed to help with the planning and execution of the Marathon. You will notice on the Volunteer Registration Form there are various assignments that you may be assigned to. Please be aware that many of these volunteer roles are on the water and require swimmer competency.

SWIM Day begins at 5:30 a.m. at Captain’s Cove and ends at approximately 6:30 p.m. when the last swimmers arrive.

If you have friends that might be interested in helping us or learning more about the SWIM Marathon, please send them to the SWIM website at www.swimacrossthesound.org.

We sincerely appreciate your help in making the SWIM Marathon a safe and exciting event for everyone.
