 How dose Chasing For A Cure work?

Chasing For A Cure is run a lot like relay for life, however there‚Äôs a group of dedicated swimmers in the pool.  To begin gather a team of five or larger. As group you can decide to swim a set amount of time or a set distance to swim, then trade off to the next participant. This event is run similar to a continuous relay. Once the participant has swam their chosen amount the next swimmer dives in after them, they swim a lap together then the first swimmer gets out. All team members don't have to be there all day as twelve hours is a long time.  However remember when organizing make sure everyone knows who's going to swim and when, this makes it allot easier for everyone the day of the event. This event is continued for 12 hrs in hopes to raise money for the Canadian cancer society, helping people touched by cancer.
