Swim Across America - Why We Swim

Cancer has touched us all in different ways; it is what unites us and drives our community to make a difference. Swim Across America - Nantucket Open Water swim has made a tremendous impact on cancer treatment and patient care at Nantucket Cottage Hospital and Palliative and Supportive Care of Nantucket.

Through the efforts of these organizations and the support of SAA - Nantucket, residents and visitors alike can receive outstanding cancer treatment and support on the island.

Maury People Sotheby's International Realty is proud to be a Platinum Sponsor of this year's Swim Across America - Nantucket Island Open Water Swim. In addition to this several of our agents have again teamed up to be part of the Maury People Sotheby's International Realty team. Team members not only brave the waters but also participate in events to meet fundraising goals.

Broker Susan Chambers has been big contributor to Swim Across America and this will be her 10th year participating. When asked by SSA for insight into why she swims, she responded.

“There are so many layers for why I swim for SAA. I’m so grateful I can live and raise a family on Nantucket. It is a magical place we call home. I was a part of the first swim and did this with my 12 year old daughter, Emma. The swim started as a way for me to show my children how to jump in and help make a difference for such an incredible cause. Always swimming in memory of the kids’ grandfather they never met. Over the years, this event has transformed cancer care on Nantucket, our home. I am in complete awe of the village who brings this event to us every year and the amount of work and effort it takes. I swim now to thank and honor every person who donates their time, money, battled cancer, beat cancer, and celebrate the brave people who share their stories. Thank you SAA!”

The Swim Across America - Nantucket Island Open Water Swim will take place on July 23, 2022.
