At the end of August, Smithtown’s 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 Harborfields Central School District’s varsity girls team. Together, more than 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 County Legislator William Spencer. “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.
