Fight cancer Foundation

Swim to Fight Cancer is an initiative of the Fight cancer Foundation, which was created in 2014 by a number of enthusiastic and driven people with a great idea: a unique swim in natural outdoor water, where participants and teams raise as many donations as possible for cancer research. A beautiful initiative that in recent years has grown into a successful event that is organized throughout the Netherlands. It is great to see how many people participate each year, all with a personal motivation to jump into the water. Adults swim about 2 kilometers and children 500 meters. By now, Swim to Fight Cancer has made a huge contribution to cancer research by talented researchers who work hard every day for a breakthrough!


With Swim to Fight Cancer the Fight Cancer Foundation wants to create a distinctive and challenging event in a surprising setting and with a strong message, thus generating maximum attention for their mission: to realize a world in which cancer hopefully no longer needs to be a deadly disease. Their ambition is to get thousands of Fighters moving every year with Swim to Fight Cancer and raise funds for cancer research. With Swim to Fight Cancer – they offer people a platform to turn their feelings of powerlessness into positivity and strength.
