making waves for cancer research

Come Swim With Us!

The 20th Anniversary Swim for the Cure will be postponed due to COVID and to ensure a safe swim for all.  Join us next year as swimmers from across southern Ontario will once again be taking to the Severn River on August 14, 2021 as the annual Swim For The Cure continues to raise funds for finding a cure for breast cancer.

We invite you to register for the swim by signing up on this page.

Online Sponsorship

Swimmers can be sponsored online through personal or team fundraising pages hosted by the Canadian Cancer Society. This is the ideal way to receive donations as a receipt is delivered by email immediately and the donation added to your total.

The swimmers who have currently set up online donations for this year’s event are listed on this page.

Severn Falls

The section of the Severn River that we are swimming is most easily accessed through Coldwater. If you are coming from the Toronto area, take Highway 400 north, and continue on the 400 extension above Barrie. The Coldwater exit is off Highway 400 just past Moonstone / Mount St. Louis ski resorts. Follow the signs to Big Chute – Marine Railway (yellow sign with a brown beaver on it) to find Severn Falls.
