Swim Across America – Long Island Sound Open Water Swim raised over US$1 million with 950 swimmers last year. But race director Tony Sibio has sights on even bigger goals for the charity swim, one of the oldest and largest in all of the Swim Across America events.
“We are entering our 21st season. Swimmers can sign up to help us achieve our goal of raising US$1,300,000.
The Long Island Sound Open Water Swim on July 27th now offers 2 km, 5 km, and 10 km marathon swim options with a new shore-to-shore swim. While swimmers will start at Larchmont Yacht Club and finish at Larchmont Shore Club, the new course is more swimmer-friendly, enabling friends and teams to swim together.
Proceeds from this year’s Long Island Sound Open Water Swim will be donated to the Cancer Support Team serving lower Westchester, the Tommy Palazzo Fellowship for Columbia University, and Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital at New York-Presbyterian, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center’s Swim Across America, and DeMatteo research laboratories, and United Hospice of Clarkstown.”
