Take a dip to help fight skin cancer


Three-time Olympic gold medalist Brooke Bennett is taking part. She’s participated in other events across the U.S. and she’s thrilled that Tampa Bay will now host a Swim Across America fundraiser for the fourth year.

“Swim Across America is a great charity organization,” says Bennett. “For me, to give back to my sport, provide research for cancer patients, and to be here at home doing it– for me it’s a no-brainer and I love seeing the results that we’re getting.”

Money raised from the event goes to support young adult cancer patients at Moffitt and also research into the deadly skin cancer melanoma.
