The Aquathon offers a challenge to local corporations, schools, community groups and individuals to raise money for the SWIM Across the Sound. Swimmers will come and go throughout the day and swim laps in the pool for pledges. Participants who raise pledges are treated to a picnic and receive specially designed T-shirts.. The 2011 Aquathon raised more than $20,000 to support the SWIM Across the Sound’s 45 cancer education, screening, prevention and support programs. The SWIM also provides financial assistance on a case-by-case basis to individual cancer patients and their families. Each year, more than 20,000 people benefit from the SWIM programs. More than 100 swimmers and walkers are expected to participate throughout the day.

The 2-Mile Sunset Walk for Cancer For those who prefer dry land, leave the pool for water-babies and join us on the Sunset 2-Mile Walk for Cancer. The day-long event finishes up with the walk at 7:00 p.m. Walkers will follow the course that winds through the beautiful Fairfield University campus. Walkers can go at their own pace and help raise funds for cancer survivors and their families.
