Swim Across America 2014

Swim Across America (SAA) is a non-competitive charity swim held on July 26th (4th Saturday in July), which benefits the Rush University Medical Center.

Participants have the choice of swimming a 1/2-mile, 1-mile, 1.5-mile or 3-mile distance. The 1/2-mile and 1-mile distances are along an out-and-back course. The 1.5-mile and 3-mile distances are along the same triangular course that Big Shoulders utilizes. The 1.5-mile distance is a single lap around the triangular course while the 3-mile distance is two laps around the triangular course.

In order to participate, each swimmer/member of the team must raise $500.  Swimmers under 18 must raise $100.  

Please consider joining the team or supporting a swimmer.
