Make a Splash For a Good Cause on Sunday

With the summer heat starting to roll in, there are many reasons to go swimming on Sunday. But here’s some added incentive, along with an opportunity to make a splash outside the pool: The second annual Swim Across America Dallas Pool Swim is slated for 9 a.m. at Town North YMCA.

The swim will benefit the Swim Across America Innovative Clinical Trials Center at Baylor Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center at Dallas. That’s a mouthful, but a worthy cause nevertheless.

The event provides a chance for swimmers of all skill levels to join a pair of 1996 Olympic gold medalists — Brad Bridgewater and Ryan Berube — who will anchor a relay team with the top six fundraisers from the event.

The swim includes half-mile and one-mile distances, which can be completed either individually or as part of a relay. Swimmers must raise at least $100 to participate. Click here to register or for more information.
