Carly's Crossing


Carly's Crossing is a unique, open-water swim event (the only one of its kind in Western New York!) that brings hundreds of swimmers and spectators each year to Buffalo's waterfront in support of pediatric cancer research and patient support programs through Carly's Club at Roswell Park Cancer Institute.

Carly's Crossing features three different course options: 

  • 600-yard non-competitive swim
  • 1-mile non-competitive swim
  • 1-mile timed, competitive swim

Swimmers raise pledges to participate in one or more of the featured courses but there are plenty of opportunities for non-swimmers to get involved, too! No matter if you are a swimmer or not, be sure to join us for the on-land party that includes live music, basket raffles, food, games, activities and prizes!
