At the end of August, the girls’ varsity swim team participated in an annual fundraiser to help raise money and awareness for cancer research through the Swim Across America organization—this year joined by Smithtown’s varsity team. Together, over 40 swimmers raised $4,000 for the cause, and both teams committed to the event again next year.
    
Swimmers were thanked and congratulated by Suffolk Legislator William R. Spencer, M.D.

“Your commitment and support will make a meaningful difference in the lives of those affected by cancer,” Spencer said.
    
In addition to the swim itself, a scientist from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory attended the event, and spoke with the participating swimmers to explain the importance of continuous support and research for cancer. Students were thankful to be able to help such an important cause.
