We’re so excited to share that Swim Across America will be hosting their first annual open water charity swim in Detroit, Michigan (our backyard!) on July 12, 2019. MySwimPro is proud to support this great charity, and our employees will be participating in the swim!

SWIM WITH US

The inaugural Swim Across America – Motor City Mile Charity Swim will be in the Detroit River, and will benefit local cancer research at the University of Michigan Rogel Cancer Center.

SWIM ACROSS AMERICA

Swim Across America hosts non-competitive charity swims that raise money to fund life saving cancer research and clinical trials.

LAST YEAR’S EVENT

This event was formerly known as the Motor City Mile, and our team has been participating in this great swim for 3 years now. It’s always a blast to get out and swim with our local Detroit community! See more photos from last year > 

This event is not a competition, but an enjoyable fundraising event for everyone! You can sign up as a swimmer, kayaker, or event volunteer. As a swimmer, you will be expected to raise a minimum amount of money based on your age and the event in which you choose to participate.

There are no minimum fundraising amounts for kayakers, paddle boarders or event volunteers, however, we do encourage you to do so if at all possible.
