Fighting cancer together

One in three people get cancer over the course of their lives. Together we can ensure that cancer becomes an illness that is no longer fatal. Taking action together for more cancer research.
In this third event, you will again be swimming, along with hundreds of others, through and alongside the magnificently restored fortifications of ´s-Hertogenbosch in the Singelgracht and the Stadsdommel to collect as much money as possible for the battle against cancer. Through your battle against the water.
You may participate as business team, as individual participant or as kid (for young people aged 8-14).
Also in 2017, Swim to Fight Cancer will be held in various other Dutch cities.

Why do we do it?

Swim to Fight Cancer is a swimming event that was held for the first time on 14 September 2014. At this first event, more than € 500,000.- euros were brought in by more than 500 swimmers for the Fight cancer foundation.
This year we swim for the third time, on 17 September 2017. The instigator behind the Swim to Fight Cancer (StFC) is Fight cancer, a foundation that campaigns for funds for cancer research and prevention through KWF Kankerbestrijding (Dutch Cancer Society). The aim of the StFC is to collect as much funding as possible to sponsor talented young doctors and researchers whom we expect to play an important role in cancer research in the Netherlands. Through these funds, they are able to acquire knowledge and skills in oncology at the highest level. In this way, they not only enhance their own knowledge and skills, but also those of their fellow doctors and researchers in the Netherlands. Using the money that Fight cancer collects, the researchers and doctors are able to collect and disseminate greater knowledge of cancer and apply it in practice.

Together we can take on cancer.

   Fight on!
