Swim Benefits Pancreatic Cancer Research

Swim for the Cure
Swim for the Cure in East Hampton benefits The Lustgarten Foundation for pancreatic cancer research.

An East Hampton family is once again opening its doors, and backyard, to raise money for pancreatic cancer research.

Billy, Dominique, and Tommy Kahn are offering up their Olympic swimming pool for the third annual Swim for a Cure Saturday, August 17 at 10:30 AM, with an inaugural award in memory of Dr. Charles Van Der Horst, a retired AIDS researcher who, at 67, drowned during the Eight Bridges Hudson River Swim. He had been a participant in the East Hampton event every August since its inception.

All proceeds benefit The Lustgarten Foundation, with a mission to advance scientific and medical research related to the diagnosis, treatment, cure, and prevention of pancreatic cancer. For more information and to pre-register, contact [email protected]
