Mission Statement

Since coming to the area, SAA/Baltimore has donated more than $2.3 million to the Swim Across America Lab at the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins. With the money raised, The Lab has received worldwide attention for its work including the discovery of a genetic biomarker for immunotherapy response that may accurately predict who will respond to certain immunotherapy drugs known as PD-1 inhibitors and the development of a genomic-based test for ovarian and endometrial cancers, using fluid collected from routine pap tests.
