Swim-A-Cross Gets Bigger, Better
This was the biggest and best Swim-A-Cross in the 15 year history of the event. They set a record with 183 swimmers taking part on Friday, Aug. 20. Since 2002, people have dedicated their swim to heroes. In 2002 and 2003 those being honored were the emergency workers and citizens who lost their lives in the collapse of the World Trade Center. This year, the field was expanded to a person in the swimmer's life who has greatly impacted their life, as a hero often does: a teacher, police officer, firefighter, US Service member, parent, family member, community leader, etc.
