Carly’s Crossing will look a little different this year due to COVID-19.

We won’t all be able to gather at Sunset Bay for a day of fun in the sun, but we’re calling on all swimming enthusiasts and supporters to swim their own way. Find a pool, a lake or an ocean and swim to raise money for the Courage of Carly Fund.

Not a swimmer?

Jump through a sprinkler, start a water balloon fight or pour a bucket of ice over your head! Remember – every dollar that you raise is critical to support kids with cancer and blood disorders. Let’s make sure the tradition of this 18-year event continues.

Take the plunge and create a team or register on your own today!
