Thank you for being a part of the St. Vincent’s Swim Across the Sound. We hope that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy.

After canceling the 2020 Marathon due to COVID-19, we are excited to share that we will be hosting a hybrid Swim Across the Sound event this year. With the current resources available to us we feel we can safely support 15 solos or teams to participate in the live event being held on August 7th from Port Jefferson to Captains Cove. To participate in the live event, sign up at

Once we have 15 solos or teams registered, any additional swimmers may request to be placed on a waiting list for the live event or join us virtually by signing up at:

If we are able open registration to additional swimmers in the live event, we will communicate that via email and on our website. Additional swimmers will be added from the waiting list on a first come, first served basis. If you have any questions or need to be added to the waiting list, please contact Chris Howard at or 475-210-7308.

Our mission is, as it has always been, to support individuals in their personal fight against cancer. We do that by providing funding of wigs and prostheses, medication assistance, free transportation to treatments and appointments, and mortgage and rent assistance. Further, the Swim funds cancer screening and prevention programs for the uninsured and underinsured.

If you are not able to participate this year, please consider supporting cancer patients and their families by donating to the Swim. Gifts of all sizes are appreciated.

We are grateful to our swim family and want you to know that many cancer patients in our community will be helped by your commitment and dedication.
