Merck, one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world, announced it was giving the largest single donation in open water swimming history. Swim Across America received the US$3 million contribution that will be used to fund cancer research and clinical trials. “Every 15 minutes, 50 Americans are diagnosed with cancer,” commented Rob Butcher, CEO of Swim Across America (@saaswim). “The good news is that more Americans are becoming survivors than ever before, and Swim Across America’s commitment to finding new cures and treatments has been an important catalyst for that progress. We are going to apply Merck’s contribution to better support our existing benefit swims and add new ones with a goal of funding $100 million into cancer research and clinical trials in the next decade.” @merck
