Olympian God, Nathan Adrian, is going to swim in open waters with Swim Across America* to raise money to cure cancer in honor of his late friend Matt Benoit, who lost his battle against cancer.
Please note that he is scared of swimming in open waters, but will do it anyway.
"In our lifetime, 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer. I joined the SAA community so that, together, we can change that. I am challenging myself by swimming in the Seattle Open Water Swim and raising as much money to fight cancer as I can. Please support me by sponsoring my swim and making a gift. The money you give will go towards cancer research, prevention and treatment and will make an impact in the fight to find a cure. Thank you for your generosity and may it lead to a cancer-free world!" he says in his personal page on SAA's website.
Swim Across America is an organization who is dedicated to raising money and awareness for cancer research, prevention and treatment through swimming- related events. With the help of hundreds of volunteers nationwide and past and current Olympians, SAA is helping find a cure for cancer through athleticism, community outreach and direct service.
ONTD, when will your fav be fearless?
