ABSC's Casey Fights Cancer with Swim Across America Campaign
ABSC’s own Simon Casey is exemplifying the type of character we hope our swimmers will always possess by participating in an open water race this September 23rd in Atlanta.
The race is hosted by Swim Across America (SAA), an non-profit organization that exists to “…Unite the swimming community by hosting benefit swims that raise money to fund life saving cancer research and clinical trials,” according to it’s website.
Casey, who will be a member of the Dawgs group this fall, is inspired by several family friends that have suffered from the disease, including a young Athens child named Hodge Rivers that Casey writes about in his bio.

Every 15 minutes 50 Americans are diagnosed with cancer. The good news is that every year millions of Americans are beating cancer through advancements in treatments. I am swimming in a Swim Across America benefit swim to #FightCancer and hope you will support me. Money raised from my swim will go to SAA doctors and researchers pioneering new cures to beat this dreaded disease. My personal page shares my story and how you may donate. Your support would mean a lot to me. http://www.swimacrossamerica.
Go Dawgs, Beat cancer!
